gnucash advice request take two
It turns out that the upload of an HBCI-supporting gnucash which I made
was missing some important patches. (See recent gnucash bugs by Micha
Lenk for details.) I am not entirely confident there are not other such
problems. This seems to me to be a poor way to go.
What I would most like to do is upload gnucash 2.2.6, which is expected
in a week or so. But that will require an freeze exemption from the
So there are three options:
1) Leave 2.2.4-1 in testing.
Advantage: Relatively stable.
Disadvantage: Has bugs which have been fixed upstream. Screws HBCI
2) Apply the further patches waiting on 2.2.4-2, and upload 2.2.4-3
which should get into testing.
Advantage: Preserves HBCI support for users, assuming that this set
of patches will really do the trick. Has not received wide testing.
Disadvantage: Brittle strategy for maintenance.
3) Upload 2.2.6 when it releases, and get that into testing.
Advantage: Gives known-working HBCI with widely testing code.
Disadvantage: Requires freeze exemption.
