Subject [jira] [Created] (COMDEV-174) projects.json is inaccurate for graduated podlings
Date Sun, 18 Oct 2015 12:46:05 GMT
Sebb created COMDEV-174:
---------------------------

             Summary: projects.json is inaccurate for graduated podlings
                 Key: COMDEV-174
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-174
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Reporter Tool
            Reporter: Sebb


The entries in projects.json come from scraping the page

http://people.apache.org/committer-index.html

This includes both LDAP groups and auth groups that are defined in the asf-authorization-template
file.

The script takes note of when a group is first seen, any subsequent changes are regarded as
additions to the group.

The reporter tool is supposed to show what changes the PMC has made.

However, when a podling graduates, the template group is converted into the corresponding
LDAP unix group. This means that changes to the podling group are recorded from the start
of the podling rather than the start of the PMC. 

One way to fix this might be to ignore changes that occurred before the PMC creation date.
Unfortunately the exact creation date is not currently recorded in the committee-info data
file (only the month/year is stated). It should be possible to deduce the actual date from
the earliest joining dates (assuming these are accurate).
