Hello, can you merge only the correction by diff patch, and for upgrade version too? That’s keep the custom editing but merge update, fix or new feature. I have lost my change (but I had backup) because piwik overwrite file at update.
I can envision providing a package of the files changed/added – to make it easier for people who unzip on their desktop and then ftp to their web server. But a diff isn’t useful for many (i.e., requires patch).
What files are you changing? i.e., is it something we can address with the theming feature?
I speak mainly of the automatic update, not zip part.
I change template login. And some php for force caching for improve the reactivity.
You’ll be able to override the login theme when we implement theming.
As for caching, if you send us a patch, we’ll take a look at its inclusion.
Then I will check the theming part.
For patching it’s easy, I use php for force send browser cache (cache-control and expire) for cache piwik.js for 4h (max visits duration), when I update I can have mistake of 4h, but the update it’s not everyday.
