Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-4638) Generate the Git authors.txt file from LDAP
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2012 21:15:39 GMT
Generate the Git authors.txt file from LDAP

                 Key: INFRA-4638
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4638
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Sub-task
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: Git
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting

As a part of migrating the git-svn mirrors to the git-wip-us environment we should come up
with a cleaner way of generating the authors.txt file [1] based on public information in our
LDAP directory.

The file consists of "username = Public Name <username@apache.org>" lines, one for each
Apache committer, and is currently being generated with the update-authors.pl script in [2].
In addition to the committer entries, the script also includes extra "username = username
<dev-null@apache.org>" entries for extra account names typically found in version histories
of codebases imported to Apache svn. The current set of known extra account names is maintained
in [3].
