<h2>Web Server Utility Sources</h2>

<p>(This page needs updating.  Please update it.)</p>

<p>To maintain the GNU project web server, we use a lot of different free
software. Most of them are already available on the Internet, but we also
have some software which has been developed by GNU volunteers and has
never been released as GNU software, because they are somewhat specific to
our needs.  Still, we feel that those programs should also be made
available so that others can make use of them.  This page is a list of
such programs.</p>

<h3><a id="cvs">CVS Tree</a></h3>

<p>We recommend storing the scripts in the usual www
CVS tree. This allows easier sharing between GNU machines that maintain
a full or partial image of the www.gnu.org web.  See the
<a href="https://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=www">Savannah CVS page</a>,
the “Webpages repository” information.</p>

<h3><a id="find_duplicate_links">find_duplicate_links</a></h3>
  <li><a href="http://web.cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/www/server/source/find_duplicate_links/?root=www">Source code</a></li>
  <li>Author: <a href="mailto:felicien@gnu.org">Félicien Pillot</a></li>

<p>This Perl script scans every file under <a href="/proprietary">/proprietary</a> to check if an URL is used twice in the same page. It runs monthly on fencepost from user felicien's cron.</p>

<h3><a id="make_patch_addresses">make_patch_addresses</a></h3>
  <li><a href="http://web.cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/www/server/source/make_patch_addresses/?root=www">Source code</a></li>
  <li>Author: <a href="mailto:felicien@gnu.org">Félicien Pillot</a></li>

<p>This script can be ran from a GNU package webroot to replace wrong broken links reporting addresses (webmasters@gnu.org) by good ones (i.e. project mailing list). Patches can then be applied by webmasters or package maintainers.</p>

<h3><a id="linc">linc</a></h3>

  <li><a href="http://web.cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/www/server/source/linc/?root=www">Source code</a></li>
  <li>Author: <a href="mailto:wwj@gnu.org">Wacław Jacek</a></li>

<p>LINC stands for “LINC Is Not Checklink”.  It scans our
web site (or any site) and makes a report of <a
href="linc/linc-report.html">broken links on our web site</a>.  It runs
weekly on fencepost from user gnun's cron.</p>

<h3><a id="planetrss">planetrss.pl</a></h3>

  <li><a href="http://web.cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/www/server/source/planetrss/?root=www">Source code</a></li>
  <li>Author: <a href="mailto:shailesh@gnu.org">Shailesh Ghadge</a></li>

<p>This Perl script fetches and saves N feeds from <a
href="http://planet.gnu.org.">planet.gnu.org</a>, using the RSS feed
http://planet.gnu.org/rss20.xml, in html format.  It is then included
in the homepage.  Each feed is truncated to M characters.</p>

<h3><a id="sitemap-generator">sitemap-generator</a></h3>

  <li><a href="http://web.cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/www/server/source/sitemap-generator/?root=www">Source code</a></li>
  <li>Author: <a href="mailto:wwj@gnu.org">Wacław Jacek</a></li>

<p>This program generates the <a href="/server/sitemap.html">sitemap of
our web site</a>, based on its directory structure on the file
system.  It runs on fencepost in user gnun's cron.</p>

<h3><a id="symlinks">symlinks</a></h3>

  <li><a href="http://savannah.gnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/www/www/symlinks/">Source code</a></li>
  <li>Author: <a href="mailto:loic@gnu.org">Loic Dachary</a></li>
  <li>Current version: 1.1</li>

<p>The goal is to cope with the inability of CVS to deal
with symbolic files. By adding special files (".symlinks") into
the CVS tree that are interpreted as specifications to build
symbolic links.  The "symlinks" script used to be run immediately
after a "cvs update" to fix the symbolic links according to the
specifications included in the ".symlinks" files.</p>

<p>This script is no longer used on the live web site.  Instead, the
<code>.symlinks</code> files are transformed into RewriteRule directives.
More information about <tt>.symlinks</tt> <code>.symlinks</code> files can be found in the <a
Links</a> section of the GNU Webmaster Guidelines.</p>

<h3><a id="update-license">update-license.php</a></h3>

  <li><a href="/server/source/update-license.php.txt">Source code</a></li>
  <li>Author: <a href="mailto:jturner@gnu.org">James Turner</a></li>

<p>This script can be ran from the webroot to traverse through English html
files replacing the old "Verbatim copying" text with the new CC license.</p>

<h3><a id="update-recent-releases">update-recent-releases</a></h3>

  <li><a href="/server/source/update-recent-releases">Source code</a></li>

<p>This script generates the <a
href="/software/recent-releases.html">list of recent releases</a> (from
the <a href="https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/info-gnu">info-gnu
archives</a>).  It runs on fencepost in user gnun's cron.</p>
