Issue 1321: Minicrib import problem?

History in the Making (Dance)

The minicrib for this dance seems to also have the minicrib for The Hospitality Circle (https://my.strathspey.org/dd/dance/8057/) appended.

The Hospitality Circle does have the minicrib imported correctly so its hard to know quite whats gone wrong here.

I presume its some problem with the minicrib importing procedure, either recently or on a previous import, so it seems more appropriate to submit an SCDDB issue first rather than just a comment to minicrib on the crib itself. Though I suppose it might originate from some irregularity in the minicrib source file.

Having seen this once I wrote a little script to check for other occurences and found the same problem in Thank You Bob (http://my.strathspey.org/dd/dance/17741/) where the minicrib also has the crib for Thank You Jack (https://my.strathspey.org/dd/dance/16052/).

As with History in the Making and The Hospitality Circle above, Thank You Jack does have its own minicrib entered correctly. Perhaps this will help in identifying where the underlying problem originates.

These are the only two instances my script found. Cheers, Murrough.

Looking at the most recent Minicrib 27_09 PDF file I can see there seems to be a missing blank line before and wrong style for the title of The Hospitality Circle. So that might explain the import problem for that one. However I cannot see anything similar for the two Thank You dances.

I will at least ask the Minicrib team about the first one.

For the extra crib “The Hospitality Circle” Murrough has indeed discovered the cause: in the “full Minicrib list” the “empty new line” preceding this crib is missing, and the automated importer has read this double crib as if it were an extension of the crib for “History in the Making”.

My guess is that the same happened for the Thank You Bob / Thank You Jack case, but that the Minicrib team found and corrected the error before publishing the current edition,

I have deleted the erroneous second cribs. David Haynes will see this message, and surely check that this error will no longer appear in future releases.
