As noticed in #21759:comment10

Currently, all synced descriptors receive their annotation from the Annotation enum (cf. package o.t.c.conf.Annotation). This happens, because only the raw bytes are taken from a given descriptor and written to the file system.
But, actually the annotation(s) should be taken from the 'getAnnotations' method and be prepended to the raw descriptor bytes, shouldn't they?

The fix for this would also simplify some sync-code.

Is the above approach ok?

comment:3 Changed 10 months ago by karsten

It does sound plausible, though I'd have to see the code to be sure.

Fine, implementation patch follows.

comment:5 Changed 10 months ago by iwakeh

Please take a look at the two commits on top of this branch.

When the change and test data make sense I'll add more test data with currently valid annotations and the corresponding changelog entry.

Looks good!

Nitpick: let's avoid abbreviations in variable names and write "annotations" instead of "annos" and "result" instead of "res". It'll cost 5 seconds more to write this code but save at least 5 seconds each time somebody reads this code.

I added a little more test variety and the changelog entry as another commit to the above branch.

Regarding the nitpick: I find it easier to distinguish between "anno" and annos" than "annotation" and "annotations"; in general very long variable names feel/look like cluttering. I changed a few occurrences, but would not want to make it a rule. Anyway, there are all these 'sb', 'is', 'bais', etc. all over the codebases. It is true though, that 'anno' might be misunderstood as year.

Setting this to merge ready as I only made very minor changes. Please check again before merging.

Resolution: fixed
Status: merge_readyclosed

Tweaked the change log a bit, rebased to master, and pushed.

Regarding variable names, I think we shouldn't use abbreviations other than commonly known ones like IP or HTTP etc. It's true that there are quite a few sb and is and so on in the code. We might replace them with more meaningful names.

Closing. Thanks!
