Subject Re: Problems moving artifacts from one repository to another
Date Sat, 31 Mar 2012 15:49:33 GMT
Hi Jack,

Can you simplify the process and eliminate the problem by doing one of the

1. Eliminate the build repository and use only the stage repository.
 Publish directly to the stage repository.

2. If you really do need two repositories, publish twice at the end of the
build, first to the build repository, then to the stage repository.

Having two copies of a revision of an Ivy module, one with
status=integration and one with status=milestone seems confusing.

We use status as an indication of the level of promotion.  A new build
starts with status=integration.  Some policy causes the promotion to
milestone, such as QA approval.  We don't automatically assign the
milestone status to a new build.  Since we have only one repository we
don't need to synchronize a mirror.
