For those of you running the most recent codebase: there may be a bug in the course import which affects courses that show code to learners.
One of my colleagues and I found a bug in the course import function on edX.org recently. Occasionally, when creating a new run of a course, it drops assessments from the course. The old run might have, for instance, problems #1 through #8, and the new run will be missing, say, problems #2 and #5.
At the moment, this only seems to affect assessments with a <pre> tag next to a <code> tag, and even then it’s not 100% certain. There’s probably some sort of other factor involved – location, other tags, etc. We’re not exactly sure when the bug was introduced, but I think it was before January 13th.
I raised this with edX Partner Support, who were able to recreate the bug. They said:
“The ticket has been triggered with engineering, but it may take a few weeks before it gets picked up. There are other problems that have higher priority.”
If I hear anything more on this I’ll let you know.
