Summary

Workaround to support the empty response of swh-graph when a
revision has no parent

In this case, swh-graph should reply a 201 no-content
and this response should be correctly interpreted by the swh-graph
lib, but it the meantime, it'll allow provenance to work with
swh-graph

this looks like a bug in swh-graph; it shouldn't return empty lines

sorry, I mean: why not fix it directly in swh-graph, instead of adding a workaround here?

Because it looks simpler and faster to have this workaround here.

Don't hesitate to open an issue in the graph if you think it's worth it, this workaround doesn't avoid to fix it also in the graph later.

For the record, we need need to speed up ASAP the origin processing of provenance so it looked as a good compromise (cc @bchauvet).

It is but that won't be fixed immediately [1]

14:30 <+vsellier> that plus the fact the swh-graph python api is not correctly dealing with the result of the api when a revision is not existing
14:31 <+vsellier> returns a 400 Bad request
14:32 <+seirl> yeah, that'll be fixed with the grpc switch
...
14:42 <+ardumont> seirl: when does the grpc switch is supposed to happen though?
14:42 <+ardumont> context is discussion on D7972
14:42 -- Notice(swhbot): D7972 (author: vsellier, Needs Review) on swh-provenance: Support empty response from swh-graph <https://forge.softwareheritage.org/D7972>
14:42 <+ardumont> val ^
14:43 <+seirl> ardumont: next week i'd say? i have all the code and all the tests, i just need to make the CI pass
14:43 <+seirl> and to add some doc
14:43 <+seirl> the draft diff is already available

lg "enough a workaround" tm for now.
