Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-16058) lists.a.o: id generation changed on around Sep 2 2017

Sebb created INFRA-16058:
----------------------------

             Summary: lists.a.o: id generation changed on around Sep 2 2017
                 Key: INFRA-16058
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-16058
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Mail Archives
            Reporter: Sebb


The id generation algorithm started producing different ids some time around Sep 2nd 2017.

Before this time, mboxes downloaded from minotaur generate the same ids as lists.a.o when
loaded into a test database using the current trunk software.
After this time, all the ids are different, although they have the same syntax.

I have checked jmeter-dev/user and commons-dev/user, but I first noticed the problem when
trying to fix:
https://github.com/apache/incubator-ponymail/issues/432
When the freemarker-dev mbox for Feb 2018 was loaded into a test database I was unable to
find the test mail initially as it had a different id.

It's a bit concerning that the generated ids should change.
Was it a deliberate algorithm change (if so why was the syntax not changed) or was it an unexpected
side effect of some other software change?
