Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-3472) configuration possibilities to limit size of local repository
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2009 11:52:12 GMT


Kariem Hussein commented on MNG-3472:

I have to agree with Andrus and David. The question is not how to configure maven to point
to a local repository, but to configure maven to manage the space used by the local repository.
The repository is maven's responsibility and should not be handled by external tools.

As can be seen from the linked issue CONTINUUM-1693 (referring to CONTINUUM-782), projects
relying on maven have to build workarounds to handle this.

What can be done to raise awareness and reopen this ticket? What is needed to include something
like this?

> it would be great to make repository-size configurable, for instance by setting the maximum
number of downloads of a snapshot-version to be kept. thus the explosion of local repository
size can be reduced.
> especially when you are working with many in-house multi-module projects which are marked
as snapshots before released , can increase repository size significantly.
