:: Semantic-bank: Does flairs and facades still tick in SB-2.1.1? -> a bit of weeding-out...

about what used to work in the Semantic-bank-2.1.1-tagged version: A
back-to-basics test, loading all the ontologies, followed by configurations
and facades available under ../src - as suggested at the end of
http://simile.mit.edu/semantic-bank/install.html, doesn't result in any
Starting Points displayed. Any-how, I'll follow your advice and check out
the trunked version of SB, Ant-it and return concrete findings to the
discussion group.

By the way, I find many issues, as mine, to be nothing but specific user
issues - or, at worst, a colloquial "1337". So, assuming you have access to
an activity report, how frequent is the use of the Issue Tracker at both
ends of the table?
More specifically, are the issues monitored daily by it's project managers?

Further, what about making the Issue tracker as accessible as the mailing
lists on the http://simile.mit.edu Front Page? That would be the already
displayed 'Join us by subscribing to our mailing lists' followed by a new
link of 'Log on to the Issue Tracker to handle your [Simile] issues' -
http://simile.mit.edu/issues/secure/Dashboard.jspa. If nothing less, it
might help to ease the word-per-minute count.

We just hadn't coordinated between ontology namespaces and their actual HTTP
resources. By all means, let us know if you find any other missing

I see there's a bug w/patch filed on Longwell that relates to Flair, which I
just applied. It's probably unrelated to your issue, but you may want to
try SB out of the repository to check.

What precisely did you do in the past that worked but no longer works?

Thanks for the catch. ViewCVS is just the name of the software, it so
happens it could be adapted to SVN without being wholly rewritten, so they
packaged it up without changing the name. Unfortunately it seems to handle
404's on its own without passing them downstream, so I made a quick change
to the error template to look more like the rest of the site.
