Horde 3.3.5 to 3.3.6 migration patch broken? Alternative Patch!

If you want to patch a Horde 3.3.5 installation pulled fromĀ  the official Horde 3.3.5 tarball
using theĀ  official Horde 3.3.6 patch you will notice a lot of patch rejects, which render the patch file essentially broken.


The patch assumes that version identifier strings of both 3.3.5 and 3.3.6 use
the dash format for dates like 2009-01-06. The 3.3.5 files shipped with the
horde-3.3.5.tar.gz file use slash format like 2009/01/06 15:22:10.

Horde developer Michael Rubinsky stated on the developer mailing list that this happened when horde repositories moved to a new server with a different version of CVS. Future version upgrades will not be affected by this problem.

When Michael answered, I already made my own patch (click here to download) from 3.3.5 to 3.3.6 which works with the real tarballs.

Users of a 3.3.5 version CVS checkout be warned. Don’t use this patch. Use the official Horde 3.3.6 patch instead.
