Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-1486) permission problem (wrong group) in archives /dist/commons/httpclient/*
Date Sun, 20 Jan 2008 14:24:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-1486?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12560804#action_12560804

Roland Weber commented on INFRA-1486:

Yes you do delete things from archive.apache.org, or at least move them around.
The (very) old HttpClient releases were published and archived at
/dist/jakarta/commons/httpclient/. Now have a look at
and notice the empty directory. Everything there has been deleted,
including the httpclient subdirectory where our stuff used to be archived.
There is a redirect installed from .../jakarta/commons/ to .../commons,
because that is the location where the stuff was moved to.

The problem is that the HttpClient releases should never have been moved in the first place,
since they were not a part of Commons. I have therefore created a consolidated archive at
.../httpcomponents/ where all our old releases are available, and I have set up the redirects
in just the same way that the Commons move was handled. Except that I had to do that for
multiple archive directories, namely .../jakarta/httpcomponents/ and .../commons/httpclient/.
And I've delete the contents from the old locations with a delay of a few days, when I was
that it's backed up at the new location. Everything in the two directories that remain is
in the new consolidated archive where the redirect points to, and it's been there for weeks.

Anyway, if you insist on keeping that stuff in a place where nobody can find it, have it your

> Hello Infra,
> the following two directories are set to group 'apbackup' rather than 'commons':
> [rolandw@minotaur /www/archive.apache.org/dist/commons/httpclient]$ 
> drwxrwxr-x   2 apbackup  apbackup  4608 Mar 16  2007 binary/
> drwxrwxr-x   2 apbackup  apbackup  5120 Mar 16  2007 source/
> Could you please delete the directories, or change the group to 'commons' so I can delete
them myself?
> The HttpClient archives have been consolidated in the HttpComponents archives, the redirect
is in effect:
> http://archive.apache.org/dist/commons/httpclient/
> ->
> http://archive.apache.org/dist/httpcomponents/
> thanks,
