Subject Re: [DISCUSS] upgrade tomcat from 6.0.44 to 6.0.45 and use non apache.org mirror
Date Wed, 18 May 2016 03:32:52 GMT
I'm not sure if archive.apache.org enforces some new bandwidth limit
policies recently, I haven't seen such bandwidth limits before. We should
consider to fix it If more people complaint about such failures.

A workaround for this issue is pass -Dtomcat.download.url to manual set a
download url of tomcat packages.
