Subject Re: 2x docs
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2011 14:56:47 GMT
I just logged in and checked, I don't have any cron jobs configured.

My original gripe, which might be what you're trying to get to Lukasz, is
that 2.x is a symlink that points to the latest release... However, when the
"export magic" happens, the docs get overwritten with whatever is currently
in Confluence. So, here is a scenario. Lukasz ran the release for 2.2.1,
everything is good. We're now at 2.2.2-SNAPSHOT from a source perspective.
Now, Lukasz adds a new feature/configuration param/etc. and updates
confluence. At some point, confluence auto-exports, and there is some other
job that transfers that export over to people.a.o. Remember, 2.x is a
symlink to 2.2.1, so by the time the next release rolls around, the docs for
2.2.1 are going to include all of the updates between the release of 2.2.1
and 2.2.2. Then, things roll forward, leaving the same problem with
subsequent releases.

I believe my original suggestion was to make 2.x a legitimate directory and
that part of the release process involved a manual step of renaming 2.x to
the current release, i.e. -

`mv 2.x 2.2.2`

And then making a new 2.x folder and granting appropriate permissions, i.e.

`mkdir 2.x ; chmod 775 2.x`

I can't remember the original discussion, but it appears that we left it
