Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-1175) when building static site, copy skin files only if they have been modified since the last static site build
Date Mon, 13 Jul 2009 00:49:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-1175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12730173#action_12730173

Gavin commented on FOR-1175:
----------------------------

Did you look at

http://forrest.apache.org/docs_0_90/faq.html#checksums

not sure if you use ForrestBot.

Who/what is oDesk? - I'd suggest contacting a Forrest Dev directly.

>          Components: Launch 'forrest'

>            Priority: Minor

> Years ago, I asked about this issue on the user mailing list:
> <http://article.gmane.org/gmane.text.xml.forrest.user/4391/match=skin+directory+copied+unconditionally+static+site+build>
> AFAIK, nothing has changed since then.  I want to report the issue here so it does not
get forgotten.
> Anyway:
> When I rebuild my static site, the "skin" directory seems to be copied unconditionally
to the build/site/ directory.  This means that, because the local files have been rewritten
and consequently have newer modification times than the remote files, skin/ is uploaded each
time I use lftp's reverse mirror function to publish changes to my public Web site, even if
nothing in the skin has changed.
> The Ant target that copies the non-generated content to build/site/ should be changed
to copy files (including skin files) only if the source file has changed.  Maybe rsync could
be used to copy non-generated content.
> If no one fixes this issue, I may use oDesk to hire someone to fix the issue.  I have
already had success with using oDesk to hire Michal Sciubidlo to fix Mozilla.org bug 269728.
 I have hired Michal again to fix Mozilla.org bug 178506.
