Small bug in Cyrus replication

There's a tiny bug in Cyrus replication that I ran in to last week, and
wrote a patch for, but didn't give to you in time for the 2.3.[23]

The problem: if your default partition isn't called 'default' then it
hits a hard coded string.

Please see the attached patch for this.

I am also attaching another patch we apply for fixing reconstruct
while I believe should also be applied.  It is against 2.3.1 but I
just checked the 2.3.3 sources and it hasn't been fixed there yet.
Just a gentle reminder :)

It is sourced from:



P.S. just FYI - a couple of issues I ran into as a new subscriber to the
     mailing list and trying to provide useful information about the issues
     I've encountered:

1) I just signed up for the mailing lists via Mailman after
   trying to follow the majordomo instructions at: and being told that
   majordomo isn't used any more!  Can that page be fixed

2) When I logged in (username & password) to the info-cyrus archives the
   page I was redirected to was missing the trailing slash, so all the
   archive links were broken (No such list 2006-February).  This and the
   fact that the January 2006 archives seem to be missing caused me not to
   give a cmu-local URL for the source of the second patch above.
