There's a topic on the forum here where the person asks how to revert plugin migrations easily. I think it would be useful if people want to try plugins and then uninstall it.

Engines seems to be able to do that but I didn't managed to make it work. Anyway, I think it's the same as the task to migrate all plugins : Engines know how to do this but a redmine specific task has been added. So I suggest to add a redmine specific task to migrate just one plugin.

I leave a patch in attachment, which is nearly a copy/paste from Engines db:migrate:plugin task.

$ rake db:migrate_plugin NAME=my_plugin : migrate to last version of "my_plugin"
$ rake db:migrate_plugin NAME=my_plugin VERSION=X : migrate to version X (and 0 when you uninstall)

Any opinion about that ?

Great workaround. I'd like fix this in Engines and submit a patch to the Engines project. I just tried to migrate a plugin on a separate Engines project ( and it had the same error.

As the Engines plugin is part of Redmine's source tree shoudn't we fix the error there? (See patch.)

For the Rails 2.3.4 upgrade (#3597) I had to upgrade Engines which will fix this bug. I'll close it once #3597 is ready.

This should be fixed in the latest Rails Engines upgrade, r2887.
