Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-18554) Github mails don't always include change diffs
Date Sun, 02 Jun 2019 21:58:00 GMT


Daniel Gruno commented on INFRA-18554:

April is pretty much marred by incongruities in the diff mails because of a) how github PRs
work internally, and b) our attempt to work around that and show diffs for PRs. This should
be fixed now and all diffs from a few weeks ago and going forward should be with the proper
diff. We do not have a way, like with subversion, to regenerate the emails that were messed
up, but we are actively working towards a way, via a new queue system for git payloads (a
replacement for gitpubsub in many ways).

so, the TL;DR is: There was some black box magic going on that caused diffs to not always
show up for a while, but we believe this has been addressed now, and we will in the near future
have ways of replaying pushes (and for instance resend diff emails), but we are not there
quite yet.

> Changes to ASF repos made via GitHub don't always show the commit diff.
> For example, the following commit [1]  on May 30th should appear as a diff on commits@logging.a.o.
However it does not appear to be there [2].
> This makes it impossible to perform CTR from the mailing list as is the case for SVN
> If the code cannot be fixed to show the diffs in the emails, then perhaps at least the
email could be amended to include links to the changes so the reader can review changes without
needing to trawl the Git repo.
