Subject Purging of m2 snapshot repository
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2008 06:47:37 GMT
Hi All,

People here may want to be aware of some changes with regard to the m2 
snapshot repo on

On 5 Aug the intrastructure team deleted every file in the snapshot repo 
which is more than 30 days old. They intend to do this on a regular 
basis from now on.

As a result, if any project using m2 uses the snapshot repo for "release 
candidates" or similar, then the artifacts may not remain available for 
more than 30 days.

And if any project pushes snapshot artifacts to the snapshot repo "on 
demand" (eg using an svn commit to trigger a build and deploy, or 
manually deploying snapshot artifacts after a change) then this will no 
longer work. Instead the only reliable way to use the snapshot repo 
appears to be to use an automatic build system to build everything on a 
regular basis (eg every week or every night) regardless of whether it 
changed or not.
