Resolution: Won't Fix
At present, projects.a.o relies on manual intervention to update the index files under data/
The cron job currently moves RDF files from data/committees/ to data/committees-retired/ if it detects that a PMC has been retired.
However it does not attempt to update the xml files, and the SVN projects_role is not able to commit files under data/
This means that the workspace on people.a.o gets out of date.
The data/ area is also updated manually.
This makes it difficult to commit changes without running the risk of locking the workspace on people.a.o.
The cronjobs should not attempt to tidy up the RDF files in this area; that should be left to manual intervention.
There needs to be a separate script to tidy the data/ tree.
The cronjobs should report any discrepancies, but not attempt to resolve them.
