Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-9175) Updating maven.apache.org site download.cgi with an executable flag does not work

Joe Schaefer commented on INFRA-9175:
-------------------------------------

You are an incredibly nice guy Herve, but you actually have the right to expect consistent
behavior out of TLP services.  You haven't had that ever since the aberrant server was introduced.
 I realize its easy to accept blame for the problem, since according to the standard cgi documentation
for httpd, download scripts need to have the execute bit set.

The problem with that attitude is that we don't actually use the standard cgi module for serving
up download pages.  Paul Querna wrote a custom module when he was VP to eliminate the need
for dealing with Unix file metadata, as well as improving the performance of the server a
little bit.  THAT WAS OUR SUPPORTED CONFIG FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

Now there is an initiative to puppetize our server configs, which is great.  But in the process
of doing that infra disregarded Paul's module, which wound up breaking your site on one of
the servers.  Instead of fixing it on the sole server that they broke out of three in rotation,
they passed the buck downstream, largely out of ignorance of what they broke, and a healthy
dose of groupthink about the gravity of the situation.  None of this makes much rational sense,
but they're miles away from acting rational about it.

Again that this ticket isn't even assigned speaks to the group's dysfunction on full display.

> I have changed the svn:executable flag in the https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/maven/site/trunk
but unfortunately the flag is not transfered to the production site.
> In the stdio output of the triggered build http://ci.apache.org/builders/maven-site-staging/builds/231/steps/shell/logs/stdio
you can't see that the download.cgi file has been updated, cause it contains only a change
in the above property.
> The result is that on production site / staging site the download.cgi does not have executable
permission which results in server error.
> Currently the work-a-round is to manually fix the property on production svn https://svn.apache.org/repos/infra/websites/production/maven/content...
> But the permission goes lost through the process of creation.
> After checking some things i found that the separate downloads in the areas of the plugins
like this http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-war-plugin/download.cgi, http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-ear-plugin/download.cgi,
http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-javadoc-plugin/download.cgi don't work either...cause
every plugin has to have a separate download of the appropriate source release which makes
this issue more important.
> I have manually fixed it in svn area https://svn.apache.org/repos/infra/websites/production/maven/content/plugins
for the following list of files:
