Subject Re: [RELEASE] Apache Cassandra 3.0.11 released
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2017 02:34:16 GMT
This is correct, we use reprepro and leave the old versions in the pool.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "put them back to the apt cache",
Julien. The only thing needed for a downgrade is:
  `wget $URL && dpkg -i cassandra*.deb`

If you run lots of servers on a specific version, then I'd suggest
dropping the specific version you need in a local apt repo and use
`dpkg-scanpackages`.

Basically, it's intentional for a) getting users installing the latest
version, b) saving on download size of metadata, and probably most
importantly c) not needing a release manager to maintain a complete
local debian archive in order to scan every old version for every
release forever. We just build and upload the latest with reprepro.
