Subject Re: [tools] Eclipse JRE support
Date Tue, 14 Mar 2006 16:33:05 GMT
Hi Tim,

There's several ASF projects out there already hosting eclipse plugins and the
infrastructure team so far wasn't all that happy if I remember correctly. I
think that the eclipse update mechanism doesn't properly support the use of
multiple mirrors, resulting in a lot of bandwidth being taken up from the ASF
hardware, and in general has rather broken HTTP support (always a thorn in the
eye of the ASF, where a lot of people that helped design and implement HTTP do
the system administration!) We should in general not take any kind of distribution
publishing (which this pretty much is) lightly, and shouldn't use SVN as a
"distribution location".

Please, let's not publish this SVN URL on the wiki or our website just yet.

- LSD, otherwise happy to have Geir sort it all out :-)
