Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-17936) Runbook for mail aliases: update reserved-ids.yml
Date Fri, 01 Mar 2019 22:01:00 GMT
Sebb created INFRA-17936:
----------------------------

             Summary: Runbook for mail aliases: update reserved-ids.yml
                 Key: INFRA-17936
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-17936
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Mail (qmail)
            Reporter: Sebb


Mail aliases such as chiroadshow, cla, comdev etc. occupy the same namespace as user logins.

To prevent clashes, aliases need to be recorded in reserved-ids.yml [1] so Whimsy (and other
apps) can validate potential new ids.

It would be useful to add this step to whatever runbook relates to setting up aliases. Ideally
record the alias in the file before creating the alias.

Note: I made a trawl through the .qmail-xxxx files recently and added many missing ones, so
this should be reasonably up to date.
