FRS: release notes association malfunction
|Reported by:||keithmarshall||Owned by:||hinojosa|
If a package is moved, within the FRS hierarchy as viewed in the browser based File Manager, release notes associations to a file in the same logical package directory are not updated. For example, the MinGW project has a package "MinGW mpc/mpc-0.8.1-1", which includes the file "mpc-0.8.1-1-mingw32.RELEASE_NOTES.txt"; this is intended to be associated, as the applicable release notes, with all other files in this package.
When the maintainer of this package originally uploaded it, he did so as the pre-release package "MinGW Proposed/mpc-0.8.1-1", then subsequently moved to its released FRS location at "MinGW mpc/mpc-0.8.1-1"; however, the release notes association, as presented in the "files" view at "https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files" continues to point to "MinGW Proposed/mpc-0.8.1-1/mpc-0.8.1-1-mingw32.RELEASE_NOTES.txt". Of course, this path is no longer valid, and any attempt to access the release notes for this package, via the "files" view "release notes" link icon, is doomed to fail.
I have tried deleting the existing release notes association for this package, (including removal of the release notes attribute from the associated file), then reassigning it entirely from scratch, but to no avail; the linked association remains stubbornly tied to the defunct path.
