#3514 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Plugin Directory: SVN Folders aren't always being generated on approval

Reported by: ipstenu's profile Ipstenu Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


This started when we moved to the new directory. When a plugin is approved, it sends and email and runs a script that creates the SVN directories. In some cases, this is not running.

I've been keeping track and there is no pattern I can see. They don't happen in groups either.

This seems to relate to SVN being busy/down/overloaded/unavailable at the time of the commands being run. This process needs better error checking, or convert the creation of the SVN into a cron job, with error checking, so that it can retry until it succeeds.

SVN being busy/overloaded/unavailable seems likely.

It's worth noting that plugins.svn hasn't yet migrated to the new DC, that's underway but plugins is likely to be one of the last to move. We can probably delay attempting to fix this another week or so until the migration is complete for SVN, to see what happens then.

Did I read correctly the the migration is complete? Is this still a problem?

#4 @Ipstenu

It hasn't happened for at least a month. If the move is done, let's close it. We can always reopen if we're wrong :D
