** Attachment added: "pathfinder.py" https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/zeitgeist/+bug/643303/+attachment/1702115/+files/pathfinder.py -- Upgrade of the db schema strategy for version jumps https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/643303 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zeitgeist Framework Team, which is subscribed to Zeitgeist Framework. Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Triaged Bug description: We have to discuss how to support versions jump in the upgrade path of our db schema, like from ("core", 0) to ("core", 2). This becomes even more important when we reach the next version. For me there are two solution: 1.) write 'dummy' upgrade scripts, like core_0_2.py, which do not more than running core_0_1.run() and core_1_2.run() one after another 2.) add some magic to sql._do_schema_upgrade() which automatically tries to find an upgrade path and run the 'shortest' possible one. There is an issue with both solutions: right now the upgrade mechanism is designed in a way that after each data upgrade the schema upgrade is done. In both solutions the schema upgrade will be done *after* the full upgrade path. This can be handled by solution 1.) in the sanest possible way, the downside is that 1.) does not scale well for big numbers of schema versions around. Any Ideas? _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
