             Summary: Investigate usage of mirrors for update site
                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-1055
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-1055
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: studio-updatesite
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M9
            Reporter: Stefan Seelmann
             Fix For: 2.0.0-M10


Apache projects should use mirrors for downloads. We use them for normal download pages, and
also for Eclipse update site.

A mirror can be down. On the normal download page that is no big problem, a reload of the
page chooses another mirror.

But with Eclipse update site it is different: If the mirror is not available it just shows
"No content", only the log shows an error. Even worse is that Eclipse remembers the URL and
reuses it. I had bad luck to get apache.myamplifiers.com (INFRA-9804) which isn't working,
and also after Eclipse restart it continued to contact that site.

We have to investigate a better way how to use mirros for the update site. Maybe it can be
configured that it isn't retried.

In the meantime I'll configure the update site to use "www.apache.org/dist", this will at
least distribute downloads to two servers.
