Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-2321) Import the Subversion podling's history into the primary ASF (public) repository
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2009 04:01:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-2321?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12776261#action_12776261

C. Michael Pilato commented on INFRA-2321:

Obviously, the Subversion folks ("we") would like to minimize the freeze time on both our
own current repository and the master ASF one.  I suggest that we provide Infra ("you") with
a trial dumpfile, to be loaded into a new repository for the purposes of sanity checking the
load's success and getting an estimate of the cost (in time) of the load.  Then we can schedule
a re-drop date of a final dumpfile (which hopefully will only differ from the first by a relatively
small number of revisions) for the real load.  Does that make sense?  I assume you'll be snapshotting
pre-load-into-the-master-ASF-repos, "just in case", yes?

> The Subversion podling will produce a dumpfile to be passed to Infrastructure for import
into the primary repository.
> There was a potential for a separate/distinct repository, but it appears the community
does NOT want that. We want to be present in the main repository. I will update this ticket,
should that status change in any way.
> The community wishes to load this code at /subversion/*. The Incubator requires /incubator/subversion/,
so a discussion needs to happen around that first.
> Based on prior discussion, it sounds like the repository will be placed into read-only
mode during the import. Thus, some kind of announcement/scheduling will need to be tracked
for this.
> We would also like to know how/where to transfer the dumpfile onto ASF hardware for loading.
> Joe says that a load will happen on a test repository first (great!). How can we get
cmpilato in to review the result of that? (and the time for load will give us an indication
of the readonly maintenance window)
> That's all I can think of so far.
