git.alpinelinux.org/cgit/alpine-secdb redirect updates
I opened a bug previously, but wanted to ask for a community favor instead (also commented this on https://github.com/coreos/clair/issues/593).
I agree that an alternate endpoint should be used, as this is a taxing load on Alpine Linux infrastructure. Until this change has been pushed, could you make a small adjustment to the 301 configuration to not redirect everything to the root https://github.com/alpinelinux/alpine-secdb/ but instead include the paths and the query string? This should keep the load off your git servers while the endpoint changes propagate but not break current running applications. Something like, `rewrite ^/cgit/alpine-secdb/(.*?)/?$ https://github.com/alpinelinux/alpine-secdb/$1 permanent;` will enable most git clients to clone as before.
Sorry to take your time on this issue.
