Description Sean Champ 2003-12-17 00:20:09 UTC
well, this isn't about bugzilla, it's about the freedesktop web site, but there
wasn't a bug category for that, so.

has a link to
which apparently redirects to

Clicking on the link for the 'dbus' cvs-module, on the viewcvs.cgi page, leads
to this url:
and the following error message is shown, on that page:

Python Exception Occurred

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.1/viewcvs/viewcvs.py", line 2647, in run_cgi
  File "/usr/lib/python2.1/viewcvs/viewcvs.py", line 2600, in main
  File "/usr/lib/python2.1/viewcvs/viewcvs.py", line 1148, in view_directory
    fileinfo, alltags = get_logs(full_name, rcs_files, view_tag)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.1/viewcvs/viewcvs.py", line 1095, in get_logs
    raise 'error during rlog: '+hex(status)
error during rlog: 0x100

Additionally, I'd tried sending an email to the address 
cvs-admin@pdx.freedesktop.org (which is given in the "CVS Admin" link, in the
freedsktop viewcvs), and that email bounced  -- apparently, that address doesn't
exist in the pdx.freedesktop.org mail exchanger. Maybe this has been resolved,

There does not appear to be a python exception anymore on this webpage. The only
question is if the email problem has be fixed.
Comment 2 pigbwxs02 2004-03-19 15:06:38 UTC
The error now appears one directory below:

Comment 3 E L 2004-06-15 15:28:51 UTC
The viewcvs python error comes and goes and seems to have something with
permissions IMOH, I think fixing the email should be done by changing it to
sitewrangles@freedesktop (in /etc/viewcvs/viewcvs.conf).
Comment 4 Adam Jackson 2004-06-19 21:16:26 UTC
python error seems to be gone, cvs-admin@ exists now.  closing; please reopen if
the python error resurfaces.
