Summary:
update.sh bin/update

Detailed description
We have looked at ithe scripts update.sh and bin/update with Karim.

-- update.sh is the script who allows to update a running wims server from the administration interface.

Iit is no longer functional (this can be fixed) but in any case one has to execute as root the

script bin/setwimsexec (or bin/wrapuid) and in principle breaks the server security

(wrap..exec has no longer the right permissons)

-- The script bin/update was useful when Xiao changed the structure

of classes (transfer of the classes). Most of it is obsolete but it contains a few needed

operations as the creation of .wimshome.

TODO :

-- clean bin/update after carefully checking what is useful

-- update the script update.sh (keeping what is really useful) or replace it by a external sript ??
The second solution should be better for the technical reason that the adress of the release tarball is not known on the sourcesup server when the distribution is packaged.
