DevOps199 Solution Idea.

in opensource •  last month

We all know the story of terminated or killed source files that may be responsible for the disappearance of 300,000,000 ETH. But, has anyone thought of a way to fix the problem? If the question becomes; "How do we fix the problem when source code vanishes in thin air?" The first thing we need to propose is trace. Whereas, whom was the open source coder to create the code in the first place? And, do they have an existing backup file? That can appear as an intense venture in attempts to fix the problem by finding the originating coder. I think I can propose an easier way to correct lost source code problems. Lets suspect that open source results in open trace to source what preexisted before termination or delete of source.

Step one : Identify the date of the source deletion by DevOps199

Once finding the exact date of deletion. The point in time is important. That point will allow for the initiation of a reverse search. Beginning from the date before delete is the goal. It's the attempt to recall the source file with pre existing data preservation storing prints of github.

Step two : GitHub is where the source was deleted. The internet archive may provide a solution for the problem.

https://web.archive.org/web/*/github.com

The above link will provide the ability to reverse trace the source file. In order to do this properly it's likely best to initiate a way to navigate to the folder where missing files previously existed.

How can it present a solution?

The source files can be provided with restoration should file archive contain the necessary source code. In the event that the files require the subdomain to be replicated to consider feeds of source use existing implementation. Than, GitHub's corporate entity may need to be contacted to furnish the appropriate subdomain followed by a update save of permalinks.

Hypothetically, if the source exists in the internet archive. The ETH can be recovered by a source coder with the time to advance the concept found in this article.
