Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-10688) unionfs for maven site merging between site and components documentation
Date Tue, 24 Nov 2015 22:52:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10688?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15025617#comment-15025617

Hervé Boutemy commented on INFRA-10688:

it should go to http://maven.apache.org/ref/ , completely hiding the /components hack (like
a unionfs would do)

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10688
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: CMS, SvnPubSub, Website
>         Environment: http://maven.apache.org/
>            Reporter: Hervé Boutemy
> Maven site is composed of a main site + components documentation: http://maven.apache.org/developers/website/website-overview.html
> Currently it is done with 2 svnpubsub entries + .htaccess:
> - / is https://svn.apache.org/repos/infra/websites/production/maven/content/ and /components
is https://svn.apache.org/repos/infra/websites/production/maven/components/, with following
svnwcsub.conf entries:
> /www/maven.apache.org/content: %(CMS)s/maven/content
> /www/maven.apache.org/content/components: %(CMS)s/maven/components
> - end of .htaccess rewrite rules https://svn.apache.org/repos/infra/websites/production/maven/content/.htaccess
rewrites to /components if file not found in /
> It works not so bad but there are 2 shortcomings:
> - wrong redirect for directories not ending with /: see http://maven.apache.org/ref
> - download.cgi script (for mirrors) does not work: try "download" link from http://maven.apache.org/ant-tasks/index.html
> After looking for solutions for these shortcomings, I found that in fact, what we are
trying to do with .htaccess rewrite rules would in fact be perfectly done with something like
an unionfs (or any equivalent tool) that merges /components into /
> This would solve both shortcomings and be less cryptic than the .htaccess rewrite rules
> could such unionfs be configured for http://maven.apache.org/ , please?
