You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1. log in to maemo.org
2. goto http://maemo.org/downloads/product/OS2008/phonelink/ (or any other
3. add comment about corrupted .install file (no rating, press save)
4. wait for page loading to finish
5. reload page

Have you tried accessing the page through https? I think the problem might be
related to the "No rating" that you give.
I know I have seen this problem periodically myself with one or two projects,
but once I'm logged in and the page loads correctly, I can add a comment no
problem with stars. When I try to add a comment without stars, the resulting
page doesn't have any comments at first, and when I reload, it doesn't include
I was logged but apparently pasted link when I wasn't (you even can't enter
commenents if you are not logged in). I have tried this ~5 times and giving
rating does not help.
Looking into the database, it seems the entries *do* get stored but not shown.
Confirmed: Went to above URL, logged in, rated as 3 *s and added comment. No
Resulting page is only half rendered (screenshot to be attached); revisiting
the HTTPS URL shows no new comment.
Comment also has not shown up on my profile page:
Created an attachment (id=925) [details]
Half-page load on downloads.maemo.org
All right, more information:
* The comments posted do have metadata.creator set to the GUID of the user
* ...but their metadata.authors and author fields are empty (which is a bug)
* Comments listed on the site are filtered so that only ones with author field
I'll investigate what causes the author field to be empty and fix it.
I think the problem is caused by segfaults on the current server. Anyway, this
should help to work around it:
I'll apply it to maemo.org later today.
Added a comment and rating to
http://maemo.org/downloads/product/OS2008/fbreader/ about an hour ago without
I got two emails that comments were added (with the comment text) to
applications which specify me as the author. Comments have not been added to
Application which were commented were
I can confirm the bug. Mails get sent, but no entry shows up on the page.
Commenting seems to be back online. Commented fbreader succesfully yesterday
and I am seeing other new comments for many applications too.
This bug seems to be fixed. Please reopen if it is still broken.
