#3816 ✓invalid

Code that depends on old MissingSourceFile breaks

Reported by Max Hawkins | January 30th, 2010 @ 03:31 AM

In Rails 2.x MissingSourceFile had the method signature

def initialize(message, path)

Under Rails 3 it extends LoadError which only takes one argument so calling, path) throws an ArgumentError

This breaks the current version of Polyglot and probably other gems.

    A major release means no backwards compatibility is promised. If you think this should be fixed anyway, feel free to provide a patch. Meanwhile this can be marked as invalid.

    • State changed from “incomplete” to “invalid”

    I'm marking this as invalid for the time being, because as David said, major releases don't guarantee backward compatibility. Also Polyglot already works, and I'm sure other gems that are being actively maintained will start migrating.

    If you have a patch, or still feel the need to re-open this ticket, just make a comment to do so, and I'll oblige.
