Forums : Ohloh General Discussion

How often does ohloh update a repository?


Factor seems to have been in an error condition for a few days while the repository works fine for contributors.

I'm being constantly updated via email about this thread for last few months -- although I'm interested in updates from forums, I'm not really interested in this particular thread :)

Can you Ohloh-guys check out my suggestion about ceasing this spam in this thread? Thank you :)

Hi Samuel,

The Factor failure was caused by a bug in our git importer. I've rescheduled the download, and I'll keep an eye on it.


I'd also love it if people would stop posting messages into this thread. I don't know if we have time to write any new forum features, but we might just delete this thread.

Hey Robin,

if the forum is organized like My Ideal Forum (tm) (MIF), then wouldn't it be a few line fix?


function storeThePostedPost($thread, $subject, $body) {


$notifier_mails = $db->query("SELECT DISTINCT FROM posts JOIN users ON users.user = posts.user WHERE thread = " . $db->quote($thread) . ";");

$notifiermails = $notifiermails->fetchAll();

foreach ($notifier_mails as $mail) {

  // send mail here




just change the query into:

SELECT DISTINCT FROM posts JOIN users ON users.user = posts.user WHERE thread = $thread *AND posts.postdate - TODAY() < $threshold ORDER BY posts.postdate DESC*;

Something like that? :)

Or just add locking the thread (also should be a 5 minutes edit)?

Of course, I don't know anything about internals and all stuff I coded web is quite sloppy and never tested in large-scale environments... but shouldn't one of these really be a small-and-easy patch? :)

Sorry for bugging you and hijacking this thread, but this would probably make this forum perfect for Ohloh's needs ;)

Here's another nod for you guys withstanding us, the whining Ohloh community: NOD :)

EDIT: You also desperately need the [code] tag in markdown... Something for pasting preformatted text. This is a developer community after all, isn't it?

This thread is now locked. If there's a project you want us to update, please create a new thread and tell us the name of the project and any information you know about why it might have failed.
