Description Matthias Saou 2006-09-15 06:40:36 EDT
Two quickies for w3c-markup-validator :

After a pretty much default install (install restart apache and go to /w3c-va
lidator/), when clicking on "Feedback", I get an Internal Server Error wich this
in my error_log :

[...]

g 1> to hash! Block <msg> occurs more than once., referer: http://shuffle/w3c-va

I'm not sure what it means, and I'm definitely not a perl expert, even less when
it comes to CGI in perl.

The second thing is that the "About..." page reads "Open source software
including Apache, Perl, and Debian GNU/Linux." with a link to the Debian page
and a "Powered by Debian" button. This looks kind of wrong for this package, but
should be trivial to patch ;-) Let me know if you'd appreciate a quick patch for
this one.

Ah, yes, I've fixed the feedback error in upstream CVS a half a year ago, but
forgotten to apply it in the FE package:
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/validator/httpd/cgi-bin/sendfeedback.pl.diff?r1=1.4&r2=1.4.2.1&only_with_tag=validator-0_7-branch

Debian references reported upstream:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3732

Anyway, both fixed in 0.7.2-4.fc* which will be in the next push, thanks for the
heads up.
