Subject [jira] [Commented] (IVYDE-281) Look into how the updatesite can leverage archive.apache to host old release
Date Tue, 26 Apr 2011 14:19:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVYDE-281?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13025241#comment-13025241

Nicolas Lalevée commented on IVYDE-281:
---------------------------------------

Since the next release of IvyDE will require Eclipse 3.4, it should probably be a good time
move the updatesite to be a p2 one (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Getting_Started). I
have seen some p2 sites which handle an aggregation of several ones, each final one containing
only one version of the plugin. We could imagine that every old release will have a p2 repository
on archive, and the new release one on dist.
I didn't see any explicit support of mirroring though. It needs some further documentation
digging.

> Following the recommendation of the infra, old release should be deleted from www.apache.org/dist
to be only available from archive.apache.org. Currently the IvyDE updatesite is offering to
download old stable releases of Ivy and IvyDE, per some user request.
> We should find a way to have the IvyDE updatesiste still offering old stable releases
but they should be downloaded from archive.apache.org.
