#2448 closed defect (fixed)

Restore IRC channel archives on irclogs.wordpress.org

Reported by: SergeyBiryukov Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Slack & IRC Keywords: has-patch


Reported by @netweb in #meta:

netweb: Does anyone know if an archive of the IRC logs was ever created before the removal of the channels at https://irclogs.wordpress.org/ ?
Only #wordpress-dev exists there these days :(
sergey: I think it might be due to the filemtime() check: https://code.trac.wordpress.org/browser/irc-logger/public_html/index.php?marks=28,29#L25
Maybe the other channels didn't have any activity for some time? If that's the case, that check should probably be removed.
clorith: All channels should be without activity except #wordpress (we've removed the logger from all other rooms)
So yeah, you're probably right

Currently, the IRC logs viewer skips .sqlite.db files older than a day. The check was already there in the initial IRC logger commit, probably to skip inactive channels. Now that the logger was removed from most of the channels excerpt #wordpress, I guess this check should be removed to make all the archives available again.

Thanks for creating the ticket and a patch, fingers crossed I'll be able to find what I was looking for once this is in :+1

@coffee2code any chance you can get to this anytime soon please?

#2 @coffee2code

Fixed in r433-code.

That site requires a deploy by systems. Here's the request for them to do so.

  • Keywords commit removed

Removing commit tag since the code has been committed. Just waiting on a deploy by systems.

#5 @coffee2code

Committed a different fix in r434-code, as requested by barry:

IRC Logger: Revert [433] and instead only allow listing of old logs if new constant IRC_LOGGER_SHOW_OLD_LOGS is true.

See https://make.wordpress.org/systems/2017/01/27/can-we-get-irclogs-wordpress-org-updated/
See #meta2448.

The archives are actually viewable if you know the channel name:

It's just that the list of channels is not displayed. r434-code should still fix that, apparently just hasn't been deployed yet.
