Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-177) Don't store derived data files in SVN
Date Mon, 16 Nov 2015 22:05:11 GMT


Sebb commented on COMDEV-177:

The file accounts-evolution.json is updated from a listing of:

ldapsearch -x -LLL -b ou=people,dc=apache,dc=org createTimestamp

However, the ASF did not use LDAP until May 2009, so the account history for earlier cannot
be derived from LDAP.
Also some of the original committer details were not added to LDAP.
Only 1995 accounts were created in LDAP in May 2009, however the historical data shows 2317
accounts as at end of April 2009.

are derived from other data that is stored in SVN and can be readily recreated. There seems
little point in storing the derived data in SVN again.
> However, some of the files contain information that is derived from dynamic sources that
are not part of a VCS; these must be kept in SVN because it is not possible to recreate them
> Such files include:
> accounts-evolution.json - this is derived from changes to LDAP which are not journalled
anywhere AFAIK.
> [That may be all; to be confirmed]
