Sharepoint STSADM Extensions which will save your life!

If you are into Sharepoint-Development you will appreciate the STSADM Custom Extensions made by Gary Lapointe: http://stsadm.blogspot.com/2007/08/stsadm-commands_09.html

In our case they saved us a lot of troubles we had when moving a Sharepoint Site Collection to a new server while preserving the Variations which have been created before.

One of the commands we have been toying with was "gl-fixvariationrelationships". Since the sources to all of these extensions are available to download for free, I could even get this one working for a Variation root other than "/" by modifying the sources a tiny bit. If you run into the same situation feel free to grab my Version of the FixVariationRelationships Class over here or here (can't get drupal to ignore HTML validation for Geshi-Nodes editing)
