I tried to publish my plugin on the official addins repo, I successfully finished inserting the source directory, and the build log says it processed everything fine -- but after it showed me the "Publish" button on the page, the .mpack files aren't existing in the repo, I can't download them, they aren't listed in the Beta-Channel of MonoDevelop's repository; In the build log there's also written:
ERROR: Could not read folder info file<br/>Creating package MonoDevelop.D_0.2.8.1.mpack
in the very last section.
What does this error message mean?
The addin-project.xml contains
<Project platforms="Win32 Mac Linux">
Next to the MonoDevelop.D.dll, there also shall be a D_Parser.dll included in the mpack file - could this be the reason why it's not finished publishing the files?
What have I done wrong so far?
Additionally I guess it's worth to say that the publishing status is stated as "Pending"..
I don't know what's required furthermore in order to build&upload MonoDevelop Addins :-/
NEEDINFO is for when we need info for from the reporter, not the other way round :)
Usability fail :D - but hey, that's the only way my report became noticed.
Not really, I read every bug report, even though I can't handle most of them myself. If we just went on the tags and state, the report would have sat in the "waiting for info" pile forever :)
The add-in has been published.
BTW, do you have an add-in version for MD 2.8.x? I'd love to try it.
Thanks for the quick response! So is it possible now that I can push some new sources to git and it'll publish new versions automatically?
I'm using the latest beta version, so 2.8.6 -- When will the addin/core versions be switched to 2.8 then?, because I've seen that the current repo still becomes redirected to 2.7 internally..
Yes, new updates will be automatically published.
About 2.7, you're right, 2.8.6 is backwards compatible with 2.7, so add-ins targeting 2.7 are be available for MD 2.8, I just checked it :).
BTW, nice work!
Ok, thanks! :)
I tried installing the add-in on the latest MD and I get an error when I try to create a project. The problem is that the add-in is being built against MD 2.7 and looks like there is a slight breaking change wrt 2.8. Can you please set appVersion="2.8" in your addin-project.xml file? I think this should fix the problem.
done; well it's somehow confusing that there is MD 22.214.171.124 already though the internal libraries are still 2.7 -- is the latest downloadable release of MonoDevelop 2.8 internally already? If so, I'll change everything to 2.8 then..
Wow, it's saying "Cannot find central directory" after I pushed the latest few changes .. any reasons for this? :D
In fact, the update was the reason - I hope you don't mind if I switched it back now. :)
