[notmuch] [PATCH] Handle message renames in mail spool

2009-11-27 Thread Mikhail Gusarov
In order to handle message renames the following changes were deemed necessary:

* Mtime check on individual files was disabled. As files may be moved around
without changing their mtime, it's necessary to parse them even if they appear
old in case old message was moved. mtime check on directories was kept as moving
files changes mtime of directory.

* If message being parsed is already found in database under different path,
then this message is considered to be moved, path is updated in database and
this file does not undergo further processing.

Note that after applying this patch notmuch still does not handle copying files
(which is harmless, database will point to the last copy of message found during
'notmuch new') and deleting files (which is more serious, as dangling entries
will show up in searches).

Did you test the performance hit caused by disabling mtime checks?

Not yet, no.

I only had a moment earlier---just long enough to review the patch by
reading it. I haven't actually tested it at all yet.

Hi Mikhail,

I *really* want this patch in, since I think a lot of current users
would really benefit from it. I only see one big problem with it:

With multiple copies of the same message being present in the mailstore
as different files, the code above will set the filename of the document
to each filename in turn, correct?

Now, I *think* that Xapian defect #250 doesn't hit us here
currently. But there was an old bug in Xapian that changing just the
data of a document would also rewrite all the terms. But we've also
talked recently about storing the filename as a term as well, and once
we add that, then this code would trigger defect #250 and cause a big
slowdown here.

So I think the code just needs to verify that the old filename no longer
exists before it changes anything in the database. And then if it does
still exist, we can get our NOTMUCH_STATUS_DUPLICATE_MESSAGE_ID return
value back here.

>   }

In this case, the return value is actually wrong. This is the case for
adding a message file that already exists in the database. I don't know
that we have any users that care about distinguishing this, but if they
did, then DUPLICATE isn't right. I suggest returning
NOTMUCH_STATUS_SUCCESS here.
