Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-4638) Generate the Git authors.txt file from LDAP
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2012 23:01:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4638?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13244797#comment-13244797

Jukka Zitting commented on INFRA-4638:

Hmm, I'm not sure if LDAP is the right solution for this at least for now. See the discussion
in INFRA-4639 about the asf-icla-publicname property.

> 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].
