With this post we conclude our evaluation and our work with StatusNet. Consider this our final report on this micro blogging platform.
This is something that has been happening on one of our clients StatusNet installations. We have been aware that the password recovery functionality has not worked since we first did the installation but have continued working the script for the sake of both the clients choice and our Script Evaluation article series. At this point final deployment of the site hinges on the resolution of this issue as password recovery is an important feature.
This is not good as changing direction now will cost us about two weeks worth of work. There is also this: the fact that previous evaluations of this piece of software have been hindered by what we now know have been environmental issues on the hosting end, some very much out of our control. All the above considerations pose the question: how much further time, if any, should we devote to this issue?
This article will be our repository of any and all information regarding this issue. What follows is a description of the problem and hopefully, sooner or later, a resolution.
