PS: The DTD issue was all my fault.  I meant to first move .net and .org as a test, but I slipped (working too early in the morning).  :-)

In any case, it didn't seem to cause too many (or any?) issues, and it was fixed a few hours later.  ibatis.net/.org are both still pointing to apache.org, like ibatis.com will eventually be (probably a year from now to give time for everyone to move).

Cheers,
Clinton

I only want to maintain one website for ibatis, both to avoid confusion and simplify deployment of the new site.  One problem is that nobody will ever have access to the current ibatis.com hosting facilities except me. 

Unfortunately I found out (after I made the change) that apache.org doesn't like to point multiple URLs to the same site.  So they set up a redirection script instead.

So now, the plan is to slowly move everyone to use ibatis.apache.org, and ibatis.com/.net/.org will simply become a redirection.  Unfortunately the redirections will not help for DTD resolution.

That said, Jeff is right, we should use the public ID, and originally it did.  Unfortunately public IDs are easy to screw up (they're a nasty format), so I chose to use the system ID, because URLs are more foolproof.  However, for future considerations, I suppose the public ID will be the way to go, or perhaps a smarter entity resolver all around (i.e. try the public ID first, then the system id for all both ibatis.com and ibatis.apache.org).

crappy, guess we'll have to fix that.

Clinton: why did we have to move the ibatis.com website to redirect to
ibatis.apache.org? Why can't we keep it the way it was for now and
simply provide a simple link to the new site from ibatis.com. We could
have at least avoided the dtd stuff for a while until we were certain
everything would function correctly?
