(From my thoughts on svn community development: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SVN/What%27s+In+My+Head#What'sInMyHead-Integratearchives/logs,permalinks,searching )
Problem: Past communications are scattered across systems and storage locations, with no consistent archives or permalinks, so cross-referencing is difficult and non-permanent. Our issue tracker and wiki provide only links that are tied to their current provider technology.
The types of information include:
Short-form chat (IRC) archives: Matrix-Static, irclogger, ASF Wilderness IRC logs.
An important step is to develop a URL "permalink" scheme to refer to our various resources. These would be technology-ignorant URLs, all under subversion.apache.org, like "/issue/1234".
A baby step is the '.message-ids.tsv' file in our web site directory, holding a mapping from haxx archive URLs used in our web pages to email message ids, with (in the commit log message) a script to generate it. There is, as yet, no automation to use the mapping in any way.
start documenting a URL-space map for our resources
Deeper integration: A permalink URL should not merely redirect the user to its technology-specific target URL, but present the target in such a way that other inbound and outbound URLs also use the permalink form. With a big third-party system like Jira or Confluence the feasibility of that is going to depend entirely on whether the system has built-in support for that usage.
