Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-9063) dist: drop retired project folders & move .htaccess redirects to parent
Date Sun, 25 Jan 2015 11:47:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9063?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14291057#comment-14291057
] 

Henk Penning commented on INFRA-9063:
-------------------------------------

In the currrent setup, it is easy to find the list of retired TLPs: 

grep -l attic.apache.org /dist/*/.htaccess | perl -F/ -ane 'print $F[$#F-1], "\n";'

Take beehive ; I prefer to have stuff regarding "beehive" to be local in "dist/beehive" ;
not somewhere else like "dist/.htaccess", where I-don't-want-to-know-who can mess with it.

If/when the "retire TLP" process is ever automated, it is much easier to fix stuff (only)
in "dist/TLP/" than to (also) fix stuff in "dist/.htaccess".

To make info (in the filesystem) about a retired TLP complete, we could add an optional "date"
 comment to the ".htaccess" file like

# retire-date : yyyy-mm-dd
RedirectMatch permanent .* http://attic.apache.org/projects/<TLP>.html

Do we have permission to fix that for dist/TLP/.htaccess files for
beehive
click
esme
excalibur
harmony
hivemind
ibatis
jakarta
shale
stdcxx
xmlbeans

> At present, retired projects retain their directory under 
> https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/
> However the only content is the .htaccess file which redirects to the Attic.
> As the number of retired projects is bound to increase over time, the dist/release directory
will gradually contain more and more of them.
> Would it not be better to add the redirect to the parent .htaccess file and drop the
directory with its sole file? Is there any need to keep the directory?
