Subject RE: Query on linking Apache Mailing list with GitHUub Commits
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2016 16:18:47 GMT
Am assuming that commit on the file means only that person has worked on the code. Is it possible
that more than one person is working on the code before one single commit? How can I know
how many people worked on a code file before the commit?

HTTPD uses SVN, Github is just a nice mirror.

Each git commit should have a line that starts "git-svn-id". The SVN commit number and canonical
link is there.

I see code commits on this link:
But when I search for a svn commit, for example, "Re: svn commit: r1768245 - " from mailing
list: on the above link I
cannot find it. Am looking for a way to link the committers in svn and mails sent by them
on the above mailing list.

That's the right list, there are no other options.  modules-dev@ is for module development
questions about modules that aren't a part of httpd.

Anyone is free to send an email with a link to a github link, but they are more likely to
address something in terms of its SVN revision or respond to the email generated during the
commit.  For httpd, github is just a read/only mirror.
