------------------------------------

             Summary: download.apache.org
                 Key: INFRA-16839
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-16839
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Mirrors
            Reporter: Henk Penning
            Assignee: Henk Penning


On infra@a.o, I proposed to introduce download.apache.org :
-- download.apache.org (only) redirects ;
   -- to archive ; for stuff that's not in /var/www.a.o/dist/
   -- to www.a.o ; for checksums, signatures, KEYS etc
   -- to mirrors ; for the rest

Why ?

-- it hides policy and implementation details :
    -- policy : what goes where in www-space
    -- implemetation : how to use the "mirror system"
-- no more [ugly] "http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.lua/carbondata/1.4.0/
-- for projects, it makes download pages easier to maintain
-- no need to fix a download page if/when a release is removed from /dist/

-- many projects have poor download pages (in view of policy)
   -- links to dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/
   -- only links to archive.apache.org/dist/
   -- for artifacts, links to www.apache.org/dist/
-- projects are reluctant to cleanup their dist areas,
   because it requires fixing download pages

[humbedooh] said on infra@:
  I am generally +1 to this idea, as it'll also allow us to control bandwidth
  more finely than we do today. the dist area is responsible for some 50TB
  per month worth of traffic from our TLP servers - reducing that, or even 
  just moving it to cheaper data centers, could help save both money
  and credits.
  The idea will need some polishing, and I'm happy to assist :)

... and on hipchat :
  my plan was we'd move www.a.o/dist/ downloads to that machine instead
  to safe traffic on the tlp servers that'll spit out some 2-3TB per day.
