Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-8400) Bug in LDAP schema?
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2014 09:26:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-8400?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14153010#comment-14153010
] 

Sebb commented on INFRA-8400:
-----------------------------

I'm sure it does work if the apps understand what the field really contains, but the comment
is ambiguous.
The LDAP schema is only a few years old now, so presumably the knowledge of what the field
really means is in the heads of the people that maintain the data and the apps that use it.
This will not always be the case.

Is the field supposed to always contain the e-mail address from which the ICLA was sent?
This might actually be someone else's email address.

Or is it supposed to be updated when a committer changes their e-mail address?

> The LDAP shema [1] includes the following description:
> 	NAME 'asf-icla-email' 
> 	DESC 'This is the email from which the ICLA was received, and the official contact email
address.' 
> This implies that the official contact email address cannot be changed without sending
a replacement ICLA. This does not seem right.
