Subject Propose moving main website to svnpubsub system.
Date Mon, 19 Jul 2010 11:04:46 GMT
Hi All,

Over in infra land we have svnpubsub system for the immediate publishing of
website changes.

The pubsub daemon watches our /www/ area for commits and
as they come in, 
does an immediate svn up on our web servers - making the changes live almost
immediate, rather
than having to wait an hour or two for the next sync to happen.

This is currently being used by other projects such as httpd, apr,
trafficserver and a few others.

After some early trial issues I'm confident that this system is now working
just fine and propose
that Apache Forrest move over to this system. We as a project need do
nothing (I will take care
of infra changes.)

Our own publishing methods such as using Forrestbot would not need to change
(as all that does is
commit to our /site/ are of svn.)

We currently commit to our svn /site/ area and a cronjob checks for updates
every 1/2 hour -- that
cronjob would no longer be necessary and the pubsub deamon would take over
listening for and performing

Thoughts or concerns on doing this?

(For the time being our 'dist' area can remain as is, but that too can use
this system if we are happy 
with it)
