As was previously in the May extension thread, many extensions suffer from over-writing base system directories. Doing this is not tolerated well when mixed with unionfs. WDef wrote a very useful script to detect this and then strip out offending directories. Instead of waiting for users to complain about individual extensions, I have run the declobber script on all .dsl extensions in the repository.
I need volunteers to test these 'declobbered' extensions and post here, in this thread. As soon as I see positive feedback, I will move the declobbered extension to overwrite the original (bad) one. The url for testing the declobbered extensions will not be added to the extension webpage nor will it be added to the mydsl download tool.
Hopefully this url will be temporary and I will be able to move all these rebuilt extensions to their proper place. This will then provide a means for users to have a better experience using the latest version of DSL.
To be begin testing please use this temporary url
Thanks in advance.
