Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-18141) Documenting project renames on mail-private
Date Mon, 20 May 2019 08:45:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-18141?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16843779#comment-16843779

Sebb commented on INFRA-18141:
------------------------------

It occurs to me that it might be possible to use the HTTP renames to populate the directory
listings. Will take a look hopefully soon.

> https://mail-private.apache.org/members/private-arch/  currently shows an index of directory
names.
> When a project is renamed, at present the original directory is emptied and deleted.
> However if the directory were to be kept, it would show up in the listing, and the redirect
will occur when the name is selected.
> Seems like a simple way to help people find the new list.
> As a test, I have created the directory 'zest-private'; clicking on this redirects to
polygene-private.
> It's a bit crude, but it works, and I think is better than not showing an entry in the
listing. When future lists are renamed, the mbox files can be removed leaving an empty directory
(or perhaps with a marker file).
> Thoughts?
> Note: the pmc index page is generated separately and would need different handling.
