Just an fyi...

I sync'd the file attachments from the old to the new.  There were a
dozen new file attachments since the last sync.  I forgot to do this
with the latest flip to the new server

frontend:/var/lib/savane/trackers_attachments# rsync -av 

In the future we should migrate that directory to shared storage.  The
information about those files is in the shared database already.  In
any future move or scale-out this would avoid the need for sync'ing.

Thank you for reporting this.  It is an untied shoelace.  This part of
the web interface was forgotten to be sync'd in the recent part of the
migration.  The web stores attachments locally.  That needs to change
but hasn't changed yet.  Therefore those files need to be sync'd
over.  Have been before.  But the most recent attachments were not
sync'd in the latest flip-flop to the new machine.

I sync'd them again now.  It should work now.  And hopefully we aren't
moving things back.  Therefore this should be the last sync ever
needed.  However I think this situation should be improved by using
shared storage instead of local storage for that.  (This is a problem
typical on many web frameworks.  Wordpress has the same issue on
wordpress systems for example and that is the most popular blogging
infrastructure on the planet.)

Thank you again for reporting this.  In the future it is better if you
send this to the address@hidden mailing list so that
anyone of the team can look at the problem.
