Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-16124) Strategy for renamed mailing lists
Date Wed, 28 Feb 2018 17:16:00 GMT
Sebb created INFRA-16124:

             Summary: Strategy for renamed mailing lists
                 Key: INFRA-16124
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Mail Archives
            Reporter: Sebb

Mailing lists are sometimes renamed.

For example, is now

On minotaur, where the mboxes are initially stored, the mbox files have been renamed to agree
with the new list name.

However the mail archives are served from eos (
This has a synched copy of the mboxes from minotaur, and a separate area where the mboxes
are indexed for display by mod_mbox. The files in this area are not only ever updated, so
there are now copies of all the original files in the new area as well. There are mails shown
up to Oct 2016 (when the list was renamed).

The mails from Oct 2016 are shown here:
Earlier mails from the original list are not currently shown because they have not been indexed.

It's difficult to follow the history across the rename.
