BugGitHub project issues Pin

Update: Your site configures GitHub's Webhooks capability to trigger on push events, and it doesn't provide a way to limit this to the master branch. I could change it so that you're notified of branch deletions instead (I delete a side branch after merging it into the master branch) or releases (not something that I currently use, but which might work for others). The appropriate trigger event depends on how a project is administered, but it shouldn't be difficult to get the project owner to tweak it. I'm assuming, however, that GitHub sends you all the information you need, regardless of the trigger event, which may not be the case.



I have noticed the following with my project (robust-services-core; I tried to create a link to it in this post, but it isn't getting picked up).

Whenever I push to GitHub, my project article gets updated on CodeProject. This happens even when pushing to a branch other than its master and when its README.md hasn't changed. However, the contents of its master.zip file on your site aren't updated with the latest changes. So this has the effect of

  • wasting your time, because an editor has to approve an update which changed nothing;
  • pushing the article to the top of your home page, which is unfair and misleading;
  • sometimes giving me reputation points for posting an article that isn't new!

I've also tried to fix links in the article, but they keep reverting. I use Firefox, so maybe the links work in other browsers. But what I see is that

  • the "Download latest Repository Archive" link uses some GitHub API thing that doesn't work;
  • links to PDFs don't open them, although they can be downloaded;
  • links to other things display a blank page (but not an error, so they must be valid);
  • a few links actually go to an error page.

When I change these links to GitHub links that work, they get changed back to relative links on your site. I don't know whether you have software that does this automatically or if editors are doing it.

I would guess that you have very few GitHub projects mirrored on your site, because otherwise these issues would already have been escalated. As a beta user of this capability, my recommendations would be

  • Only update the article when its master branch is updated.
  • When its master branch is updated, replace the master.zip copy on your site.
  • Replace the article's GitHub-relative links with full GitHub links unless you can make the CodeProject-relative links work.
  • Don't give the article's owner reputation points for posting a new article.

If these things were done, it would be reasonable to push the article to the top of your home page again. I would also change other articles that I've written about this project so that they downloaded from the project's master.zip on your site.
