Paypal Issue since 20th of January 2009
« on: January 29, 2009, 10:27:41 am »
... just FYI, paypal seems to send now different HTTP responses/requests ... on all of my servers (featuring 1.2.2 dev and 1.2.1 stable) the payments won't get recorded into the payment table.

Although, points are given out.

If you experience this too, please leave a note here.

I did not do any changes to the payment system in the past weeks, so I am fairly sure it is (again) a change of formatting on the behalf of Paypal that breaks the saving.

I'll look into this later on, just wanted to make that public.
It should be fixed, but it won't be easy and it won't be fast. If you want
to help - wonderful. But keep in mind that it will take months of wading
through the ugliest code we have in the tree. If you've got a weak stomach -
stay out. I've been there and it's not a nice place.
