[ckan-dev] RDF: Need to provide read.rdf in template extension when overriding read.html

I just discovered today that I have same issue (read.rdf template missing) on my catalogue based on an CKAN 2.2a prerelease, that doesn't have this issue fixed. But I need it urgently for another project that use our datasets..
Error detail:Viewing dataset datasets in rdf format is not supported (template file package/read.rdf not found).
Do you have a fixing procedure to fix this issue in order to fix it on a previous (to fix) version of CKAN? 
I am planning to update to 2.3, but I cannot do it in a short time frame.

Thanks a lot for any help

Subject: [ckan-dev] RDF: Need to provide read.rdf in template extension when	overriding read.html

Hi there,
I just found out, that if you install an extension that provides a new template for "package/read.html", you *must* provide the standard "package/read.rdf" along in the same directory, in order to keep the standard RDF functionality (i.e. just append ".rdf" to the dataset URL, see http://docs.ckan.org/en/latest/linked-data-and-rdf.html). I'm not sure it this is by design (i.e. feature) or a bug.

I get the following error if I don't provide that file:
Error - <class 'genshi.template.loader.TemplateNotFound'>: Template "package/read.rdf" not found

I always assumed, that CKAN uses the standard template if you don't provide your own. This seems not to be the case for the RDF template.
Maybe this saves someone else some debugging time :)

Best Regards Stefan

PS: I'm using CKAN 2.0.3, so maybe this has already been fixed in later versions.
