[Glass] todeUpdate failed :-(

Okay ... GsDevKit _is_ pretty old ...

At one point in time, there was a conversion process, but I haven't thought
about the process for over 5 years and  even so there were limitations to
what could be done...

Sooo, I think that the most efficient way to do the conversion is to have
me do it for you, if you could ship me a copy of your extent (I can give
you a write only upload site to send me your extents). I'd be able to work
out the details of the conversion myself, the part that I "have to do"
would be to update the stone to a newer version of tODE that is expected to
be used with the GsDevKit_home project and using the recent versions of the
various projects in the GsDevKit_home universe --- I would share the sha of
each project, so all you'd have to do would be update you repos to match
the SHAs I used, and you'd be able to move forward ...

An alternative to sending me the extent would be for you to give me ssh
access to a machine in your data center that I could work on ...

If you have data that can't be shared with me .. then it would be best for
you to remove the unsharable data from the stone before sharing it with me
and I would concentrate on developing a script that you could follow to do
the update of you own stone ...

Of course. if you don't have any data that needs to be preserved, then
starting over is a good idea (i.e., start with a tODE image built in
GsDevKit_home and reload the rest of the projects) ...

Let me know how you want to proceed:

   1. give me a copy of your extents
   2. give me a sanitized copy of your extents
   3. ssh access
   4. recreate stone in GsDevKit_home

I would think that it would take me a week or so figure out the formula (1,
2, or 3) ... the big issue is that the old tODE expects a certain directory
structure and the newer tODE expects a different directory structure ...
your stack shows that the directory structure/objects on disk don't match
with what is expected by the code and telling you how to navigate that path
by remote control will be extremely difficult to do remotely ...

I might be able to do the work without a copy of your extent, but it could
also be a big waste of time if there are subtle things in your stone that
I'm not aware of and if there are subtle issues the only efficient way for
me to understand them would be to inspect the extent directly
