Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-18589) Github Pull Requests get mysteriously updated
Date Tue, 25 Jun 2019 09:52:00 GMT

Jarek Potiuk commented on INFRA-18589:
--------------------------------------

The whole point of this issue is to make stale bot working as expected :). But maybe indeed
there is a setting in stale bot that we should change - maybe it is somewhat misconfigured.
What is project bot? I've never heard of it BTW ?

BTW. Again all issues (but one) were updated 4 days ago ... Maybe we can follow-up with github
support ?

> We have a problem that pretty much all PRs in Apache Airflow project get peridically
updated, which prevents us from closing them automatically by stalebot.
> I already saw it several times - it happens from time to time (every few weeks) that
all PRs in Apache Airflow are somehow "refreshed" - i.e. their updated date changes to "current"
even if there is no change visible for those PRs. It's quite clearly visible for example here:
https://github.com/apache/airflow/pulls?page=8&q=is%3Apr+is%3Aopen+sort%3Aupdated-desc
- you can see clearly that pretty much all the PR - including some really old ones - were
updated yesterday. But when you look at those issues you will see that they were last updated
months ago and there is no activity from yesterday.
> For example look at this one: https://github.com/apache/airflow/pull/2460 - it's been
last updated in December 2018 (!) and still when you sort tasks by 'most recently updated'
it is shown as updated yesterday.
> This "update date" gets bumped periodically. I opened ticket to Github so that they could
check what happens but their response was not helpful (see below).
> I looked at other apache repositories and they seem to be free of this issue - for example
here: https://github.com/apache/lucene-solr/pulls?page=5&q=is%3Apr+is%3Aopen+sort%3Aupdated-desc
- you would see rightfully some very old PRs and no PRs are updated at the same time.
> I was wondering that maybe there is some write-capable integration for Apache Airflow
project installed that performs such generic "refresh" - I have no access to settings of the
repo, but maybe you can find the possible culprit for this behaviour.
> Here is the response from Github I got:
> ##############################################################
> Our apologies for the wait, and thank you for getting in touch! Due to a high volume
of requests, we are currently experiencing much longer than average response times here in
Support. You asked:
> Can you please let us know what action caused the update and what can we do to prevent
it from happening again ?
> The updated_at for any object, including users, will change whenever the database record
for that object is updated. Such database updates can happen for many reasons, though we don't
have a complete list of those to share with you and your team. We wish could be of more help
here as we see how this can be a problem for you and your team, but we don't currently have
any other insight to share at this time.
> Please let us know how else we can be of help!
