Date Tue, 24 Sep 2019 16:34:00 GMT


Julian Foad updated SVN-4831:
    Summary: Subversion project-owned URLs (Wiki migration follow-up)  (was: Subversion Wiki
migration follow-up)

> Subversion project-owned URLs (Wiki migration follow-up)
> --------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: SVN-4831
>                 URL:
>             Project: Subversion
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: infrastructure
>            Reporter: Julian Foad
>            Priority: Major
> Following migration of Subversion wiki from MoinMoin to Confluence, we have three URL
>  * Moin Moin URLs (obsolete): **/PageName
>  * Confluence URLs: **/PageName
>  * Project-owned URLs: **/PageName
> It would be good to use project-owned URLs for our resources, to protect against future
URL invalidation caused by each new technology dictating its own URL (arbitrary, from our
point of view) for our resources.
> We already have, in our .htaccess file, a redirect from project-owned URLs to the Confluence
URLs. However, it's only a forward redirect; after following it, the user is then shown the
page and all its outgoing links using the Confluence URLs.
> We should, with infra's help where necessary:
>  # Set up a redirection from the old Moin Moin URLs to the project-owned URLs (because
existing immutable resources, such as external web sites and old source code, continue pointing
to old URLs).
>  # Reconfigure Confluence to use the project-owned URL prefix.
>  # Update existing links in all modifiable resources (web pages, source code, issues,
wiki) to refer to project-owned URLs.
> (The same principle should be applied to our other resources too: issues, IRC logs, mail
archives, etc.)
