When trying to run the update function for this module, I got the following fatal error:

An unrecoverable error has occurred. You can find the error message below. It is advised to copy it to the clipboard for reference.

Comments

The missing function is in globalredirect.module. I copied it over to the .install file and ran update with no problem.

Thank you, solved my problem.

The easy solution was to add a drupal_load('module', 'globalredirect') right before calling the function. This has been fixed in the lastest CVS:

SebCorbin: This was already fixed in the development branch after 7.x-1.3. See http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/globalredirect-HEAD.tar.gz

Apparently the fix in #3 didn't survive the Great Git Migration.

It was fixed right here: http://drupalcode.org/project/globalredirect.git/commitdiff/94534de

The confusion is coming from #1045842: Development releases link to wrong branch which is that all of the fixes are going into the master branch which is != to the 7.x-1.x branch.

So should I be pulling from 7.x-1.x or from master? Or both?

And when I submit a patch relative to "master" which is different from "7.x-1.x" should I set the version to "<none>" since there is no version option labeled "master" ?

Wouldn't it be simpler to just merge the changes in master back into the 7.x-1.x branch?

Or delete the 7.x-1.x branch and then rename master to 7.x-1.x ?

Or rename the master branch to 7.x-2.x and release against that?

Well, I answered my own question. I checked out "master" and it totally broke my site.

Okay, I've created a functional local branch combining the 7.x-1.x branch with the master branch.

So here are two patches.

This is now fixed on the correct branch, 7.x-1.x.
