[pmwiki-users] Attempting to get pits-0.23.php operational

The PITS recipe was developed by Pm for the PmWiki issue tracking system. It  
was later modified by me to help more easily prioritize the open feature  
requests, enable some caching and change the layout to something more  

Other developers who needed different features have "forked" the versions  
running at pmwiki.org and released their own versions at different times. It  
seems that these versions pits-0.22.php, pits-0.23.php, ... derive from the  
first generation of the PITS.php file, and are now quite different from our  
current version.

With regrets, I have to admit that I have never found the time to examine  
these modified versions and include their changes and features in the basic  

If you're trying to use the file PITS.php, it is the one running on  
pmwiki.org and supported by me, and I can try to help in case of problems.  
If you're using another version released by another developer, it may be  
best to contact him for support.
