I've just upgraded a 4.2.1 install to 4.2.2 and I noticed that some important topics are overwritten:
  • Main.TWikiAdminGroup (this one is serious)
  • TWiki.InterWikis

I didn't find these issues documented and another ways to customize them (as there is Main.TWikiPreferences to customize TWiki.TWikiPreferences).

TWiki.InterWikis is overwritten because is a topic shipped with a plugin. I'll make an experiment to see if it can be solved easily.

-- TWiki:Main.RafaelAlvarez - 11 Aug 2008

yes, this has been a problem forever frown We've been working on reducing the number of topics for which this happens - TWikiUsers topic for eg, but its pretty frustrating.

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 12 Aug 2008

I tried to %INCLUDE% another topic into TWiki.InterWikis, so custom mappings can be put outside the shipped topic. Sadly, it didn't work.

-- TWiki:Main.RafaelAlvarez - 12 Aug 2008

The upgrade package that I normally make excludes exactly these kinds of files.

I'll make an updated upgrade for 4.2.2 also. I have time the next days

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 12 Aug 2008

With the update package, I think this issue is solved.
