Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-10688) unionfs for maven site merging between site and components documentation
Date Mon, 22 Feb 2016 18:47:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10688?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15157461#comment-15157461

Hervé Boutemy commented on INFRA-10688:

notice that there are 2 shortcomings: the wrong rewrite for directories not ending in / and
the closer.cgi script that does not find the template (because it seems to not know about
the applied rewrite rule)

>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Wish
>          Components: CMS, SvnPubSub, Website

> 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
to see the failure, but the link from /components "works": http://maven.apache.org/components/ant-tasks/index.html
(images are ko, since this url is not expected to be used)
> After looking for solutions for these shortcomings, I found that 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?
