Subject Re: maven-artifactNNNN.tmp in /tmp not cleaning
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2008 07:56:50 GMT
Could you file a bug for this?

A workaround would be to restart the server occasionally (you'll need  
to confirm, but I believe they'll be marked for deletion when the JVM  
exits); or probably more effective is a cron job that deletes any more  
than a few minutes old.
