Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-11100) Clean up stale artifacts in the ActiveMQ snapshots repository
Date Sun, 24 Jan 2016 19:43:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-11100?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15114491#comment-15114491
] 

Robbie Gemmell commented on INFRA-11100:
----------------------------------------

I've had a similar request actioned for Qpid in the past, actually identifying all the versioned
subdirectories I thought should be removed given there were far less of them, perhaps 20-30,
and that took quite a while to do. Given that there are hundreds of stale artifacts here needing
removed at this point (going back over 6 years), even if commiters can actually delete things
themselves individually, wouldnt clearing out the whole repo be preferable than trying to
sift through every artifact individually and correctly identify the ones that could be kept
while deleting the rest?

> We've collected a large number of snapshots in the ActiveMQ repository, some for versions
that were never released, and some due to choosing a bad version to develop on.  We've cleaned
up our versions on our development branches now.  It would be good if we could clean things
up to both reduce confusion from people seeing (or worse, keep using) the stale artifacts,
and to recover the wasted space. 
> Would be good to just wipe out the contents of our snapshots repo and let the scheduled
builds repopulate with the current and correct snapshots.
