This might be a bit premature as I need to test it more thoroughly.
I was playing with my new devel shard (Internal client/dirtsand) and I created a new avvie to test out making a new neighborhood. I got my KI and deleted the hood book and entered the nexus to create the new hood. This seemed to work fine but when I went back to the nexus to set it public, I could not see it listed. I switched to my first avvie and had the same result... no listing under Public Ages. I did all the usual things... restarted the client... restarted the server... to no effect.
I brought up pgAdmin and started snooping in the database and discovered that the owner count was zero for the new Age. After digging through the Python code I saw that if the owner count was 0 and the population count was zero, the hood is not displayed. The bug is that the original creator was not being counted as an owner so I never saw the Age listed with any avvie. After changing the owner count to 1 manually, the Age was displayed in the nexus listing.
Is this by design or is this a bug? I need to do this with another avvie (and possibly using a different account) checking if the KI says that avvie is an owner even if the owner count is 0.
I could really use some tools to be able to inspect the vault contents of my test setup... or even a bunch of fire extinguishers to freeze those BLOBs into submission.
