kent: No, I noticed this while building a UCI.
robert: That had crossed my mind, so i tried changing the extension to 'ci' (both are the same type of file, yes?). It didn't mount using mydsl-load, and at this point i don't know much about the differences so didn't try anything else yet. I just assumed that the user.tar.gz was optional, and would not cause trouble if it didn't exist. Another assumption was that uci replaced ci. I now assume that both assumptions were incorrect.
I think in the future I will add a user.tar.gz, even if it just includes a single file, like a link or something.
update: just adding a file in user.tar.gz doesn't help. I guess a menu item is required in a uci? That doesn't sound like an ideal situation. What if you had a non-interactive program which also included user-specific files? It would need a user.tar.gz, but not a menu item.
Also seems kind of overly complicated to have two different cloop extension types just because one has a menu item and one does not.
