I'm getting this error message when I refresh my wiki:
$ hg commit -u me -m "Minor corrections" refreshing wiki.. scanning htmletc/moco-conf-rooms.mdwn building htmletc/moco-conf-rooms.mdwn Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/Text/Typography.pm line 542. building sidebar.mdwn, which depends on htmletc/moco-conf-rooms building contact.mdwn, which depends on sidebar building 500.mdwn, which depends on sidebar Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/Text/Typography.pm line 542. building ceramics.mdwn, which depends on sidebar building glossary.mdwn, which depends on sidebar syntax error in pagespec "internal(glossary/comment_*)" warning: post-commit hook exited with status 2
But there is no error if I use
ikiwiki --rebuild to regenerate the whole thing.
You neglect to say what version of ikiwiki this is, or give any information to reproduce the bug.
My guess: A version older than 3.20100403, which included 799b93d258bad917262ac160df74136f05d4a451, which could lead to incorrect "syntax error in pagespec" that only happened some of the time.
(The Text::Typography warning seems probably unrelated.) --Joey
I'm sorry, I don't know what I was thinking there. It's ikiwiki 3.20100212, and manually applying the patch you linked to made the bug go away. (Upgrading ikiwiki is a pain on nearlyfreespeech, especially if you don't want to keep the build directory around -- please consider making ikiwiki runnable directly from a git clone.)
