[sugar] datastore "instance/" directory
Sat Mar 1 08:46:02 EST 2008
on the low level api page:
- it says: "The "instance/" directory is used for transfer to
and from the datastore (see above)." it's not clear from
context what this means (the "transfer" part), nor what the
"see above" comment refers to.
- it's also not clear (to me, anyway) what the "non-standard
location" comments in the table mean. "non-standard", as opposed to
- it's not clear what the answer to bert's first FIXME question
is, re: the volatility of "instance/". is "instance/"
really just as volatile as ("tmp/"? michael's answer refers
to "tmp/", not "instance/".)
- the second FIXME question re: persistence, is still a good
one. the referenced ticket (#5033) is closed, but it's still
not clear to me how long-lived the "data/" directory is.
i guess it's kept across upgrades, and so it would be up to the
activity to version it, if necessary, correct? and if the
activity is removed, "data/" goes away? (and is the answer
the same no matter where the activity itself is installed?)
meta-question: is this the right forum/format for raising
questions like this? should i use the wiki's discussion page
