The Windows box that generates the CHM manuals needs to be able to copy the files 
to the rsync box properly.

It currently uses an alternative ssh key to my personal account on the rsync box, 
copies the file to a manual-chm-new/ folder, which then is 'sanitycheck' and 
copied to manual-chm/ via personal cronjob - which then again is copied to rsync 
space via global crontab.

Test script:
This bug report is filed into the 'security related' package with bugtype=bug with the intentions to test bug#54398

So... The package 'security related' should be removed as it doesn't do anything 

Switching to the proper bug type

Richard; We need to find some solution to this..
I think the rsync box should rather copy the files from the windows box (from http even?). 
Makes it alot easier from access control perspective, and removes this bus factor of using 
personal account for copying.

(..and testing if you can see this bug report since you are assigned to it, but not in the 
'security developer' list).

In terms of security, I can't make any useful comments. I'm fortunate to not have 
to deal with that at any useful level.

I don't know if it would be possible to install a simple http server on the box 
and let it serve over http(s)?

I've installed the Abyss web server (very small, simple and free from onto the Windows CHM build machine and Omniti have allowed http traffic to be routed through to it.

You can see the page at or I assume oti1 is just an alias.

This currently just shows a list of compiled CHM files. I'll be adding a prettier front end to also allow access to the build logs for each language, as well as an MD5 hash and maybe a little indicator to show if the build 
failed in the current run. As things stand, as of Friday 6th May 2011, the Japanese (ja) and Chinese (zh) builds failed during configure.php.

I don't know what to amend for the rsync box to pull from oti1. If someone can point me in the right direction ...

rsync removed. Public http server now accessible to retrieve windows CHM files.
