      Dave - I received a report from a user that they were having trouble creating a repeating entry. I was able to replicate the error and tracked it down but not sure how best to resolve it and figured I would check with you to see which is the easiest/desired approach.

      The issue has to do with the timestamp field in the mrbs_repeat table. In the database this is defined as a timestamp field and intended to be automatically updated. This is usually not the Moodle way of doing things and may make the MRBS block more limited in terms of databases that it will run on but I'm OK with it being that way for now. In any case in blocks/mrbs/web/mrbs_sql.php in the mrbsCreateRepeatEntry (and I noticed the same in single entry) we are setting:

      $add->timestamp = time();

      which populates it with the current time as a unix_timestamp. This value is rejected. Now that I have thought about it - I went in and looked at what the field is intended to be according to the blocks/mrbs/db/install.xml file and it is an unsigned it like the other fields. I'm thinking someone may have changed it on the site and when we upgraded the site it maintained the table as it was previously. I am going to change it in this database which was having problems and see if that resolves the issue and then we can resolve this as not a bug. I'll go ahead and leave the issue in the tracker since I have done this much typing and investigation already in case others run into a similar situation.

      Peace - Anthony
