postgr.es/p/githash to redirect to git.postgresql.org?

Jehan-Guillaume de Rorthais
Hi,

I've faced a couple of time the need to shorten the URL to a PostgreSQL commit.

What are you thinking about the bellow redirection?

  https://postgr.es/p/$githash
  Location: https://git.postgresql.org/gitweb/?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=$githash

Eg.:

  https://postgr.es/p/b5810de3f4 
  Location: https://git.postgresql.org/gitweb/?p=postgresql.git;a=commitdiff;h=b5810de3f4

Regards,

We already have
https://git.postgresql.org/pg/commitdiff/$githash
which is 20 chars longer than your proposal, but already much shorter
than the original.

I'm not -1'ing your proposal, but I at least find that one good enough.

FWIW it's bd easy enough to add such a forwarder if we want to. But it seems the enthusiasm for doing it is not great? :) Does anybody else have any opinions on it?

The already existing redirect that Álvaro seems close enough in length (and
more readable) to not add another redirect to maintain forever.

cheers ./daniel

I wasn't aware of the existing shorted URL Alvaro pointed out. I'm fine with it.
