Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-16124) Strategy for renamed mailing lists
Date Wed, 28 Feb 2018 17:29:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-16124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16380701#comment-16380701

Sebb commented on INFRA-16124:
------------------------------

Note that Permalinks for mails in the original and new locations are directly related.

This is the same message in the old and new displays:

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/www-infrastructure-issues/201610.mbox/%3cJIRA.13009026.1475285300000.713822.1475285360976@Atlassian.JIRA%3e

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/infra-issues/201610.mbox/%3cJIRA.13009026.1475285300000.713822.1475285360976@Atlassian.JIRA%3e

A redirect from /www-infrastructure-issues/ to /infra-issues/ would allow links to the original
lists to continue working.
Once the earlier mails have been indexed, it will be possible to see the entire history.

> Mailing lists are sometimes renamed.
> For example, infrastructure-issues@apache.org is now issues@infra.apache.org.
> 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 (mail-archives.apache.org).
> 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
under 
> http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/www-infrastructure-issues/
> up to Oct 2016 (when the list was renamed).
> The mails from Oct 2016 are shown here:
> http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/infra-issues/
> 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.
