Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-18017) mod_mbox: mail-archive/mail-private scripts need to be adjusted
Date Mon, 08 Apr 2019 15:54:00 GMT


Sebb commented on INFRA-18017:

I have created a branch with the changes (mail-vm2-setup).
I hope these will work in-situ, but I've not been able to test locally.

The crontab entries have been disabled for initial testing.

> The scripts that create the mod_mbox archives on mail-archive and mail-private assume
that the mboxes are sourced from minotaur, and make other assumptions about directory layout
and file names.
> The public mail archive scripts in particular are complicated and fragile.
> The directory layout currently has to be changed from minotaur, e.g.
> RAW/httpd.a.o/dev becomes MBOX/httpd-dev
> and
> RAW/ becomes MBOX/www-xyz
> empire-db probably needs special handling.
> The private mail archive scripts are not as complicated because the layout is identical
to minotaur. They also handle updates of historical mboxes better.
> However whatever replaces minotaur won't necessarily have the same layout.
> Note that changing the mbox layout on the boxes would break all Permalinks unless lots
of redirects were put in place. It would also require reworking the permission schemes on
the private archive box
