Subject Re: [NOTICE] Git web site publishing to be done via .asf.yaml only as of July 1st
Date Thu, 24 Jun 2021 15:55:50 GMT
Hi Vinoth,

I can take this up. Is there any existing jira for this? Sorry I am new new to Hudi community,
if not I can clone an existing one. Please share a sample.

 Hi all,

Looks like this will apply to our site? Any volunteers to help fix this?

Subject: [NOTICE] Git web site publishing to be done via .asf.yaml only as
of July 1st
To: Users <>

TL;DR: if your project web site is kept in subversion, disregard this
email please. If your project web site is using git, and you have not
deployed it via .asf.yaml, you MUST switch before July 1st or risk your
web site goes stale.

Dear Apache projects,
In order to simplify our web site publishing services and improve
self-serve for projects and stability of deployments, we will be turning
off the old 'gitwcsub' method of publishing git web sites. As of this
moment, this involves 120 web sites. All web sites should switch to our
self-serve method of publishing via the .asf.yaml meta-file. We aim to
turn off gitwcsub around July 1st.

## How to publish via .asf.yaml:
Publishing via .asf.yaml is described at:
You can also see an example .asf.yaml with publishing and staging
profiles for our own infra web site at:

In short, one puts a file called .asf.yaml into the branch that needs to
be published as the project's web site, with the following two-line
content, in this case assuming the published branch is 'asf-site':

  whoami: asf-site

It is important to note that the .asf.yaml file MUST be present at the
root of the file system in the branch you wish to publish. The 'whoami'
parameter acts as a guard, ensure that only the intended branch is used
for publishing.

## Is my project affected by this?
The quickest way to check if you need to switch to a .asf.yaml approach
is to check out site source page at - if your site is listed
in yellow, you will need to switch. This page will also tell you which
branch you are currently publishing as your web site. This is (should
be) the branch that you must add a .asf.yaml meta file to.

The web site source list updates every hour. If your project site
appears in green, you are already using .asf.yaml for publishing and do
not need to make any changes.

## What happens if we miss the deadline?
If you miss the deadline, don't fret. Your site will of course still
remain online as is, but new updates will not appear till you
create/edit the .asf.yaml and set up publishing.

## Who do we contact if we have questions?
Please contact us at if you have any additional

With regards,
Daniel on behalf of ASF Infra.
