Description T. Gries 2013-03-23 09:18:41 UTC
I discovered that GitInfo.php still uses hardcoded directory path separators.

In my view it should better use system independent constant DIRECTORY_PATH instead of hardcoded "/".
Comment 1 Daniel Friesen 2013-03-23 09:26:15 UTC
You might want to make a general bug about that. Practically the entirety of core hardcodes /s.

For all the path stuff we do we have a grand total of 12 uses of DIRECTORY_PATH inside of core. And 9 of them are in GlobalSettings. The last three files only use it once.
Comment 2 Tony Thomas 2014-02-05 10:07:36 UTC
Is DIRECTORY_PATH variable an already defined one ?
should changing GitInfo.php#L53 
$this->basedir = $isAbsolute ? $path : "{$dir}/{$path}"; 
$this->basedir = $isAbsolute ? $path : "{$dir}".DIRECTORY_PATH."{$path}";
or sth similar do the trick ?

What I meant was: use the PHP-built-in constant DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR (string)  see

I have made a draft. Can you go through this and check whether its the right way to do it ?
