Wow, what a good idea, Bjorn ... after
hours of continued frustration .. .it sometimes working, sometimes not
... I tried going direct to our
IBM internal mirror in Ottawa and ...
it worked GREAT. So .. problem solved. :)
Just kidding ... this does demonstrate,
though, that a big part of the problem is the mirroring process itself
(or, our timing). I think if we try to go directly to Eclipse.org, we are
often "shut out" because the Eclipse.org infrastructure is trying
to give a very high priority to replicating to the mirrors (so, files are
unavailable to us mere downloaders) ... and, even though now that the list
of mirrors is growing .. that's a little deceptive because the list of
mirrors is based on the existence of one specific file (/callisto/releases/site.xml)
as an indicator that the site does indeed mirror that directory ... it
does not mean that all 300 Megs of files are already duplicated there yet
(so, picking that mirror will sometimes end in failure, depending on what's
So ... we should expect to see the general
experience improve over next day or two ... as mirror replication finishes.
Also, I know Denis is working on some
improvements in general strategy of mirroring "temporary" builds
.. as our /staging area was ... no need to flood the system with that.
I expect in the future, we won't mirror
the /staging area at all, once we have tested it, we will copy to "/releases"
area ... and then no one will touch it for several days .. while it replicates
around the world.
Oh, and BTW ... in case you think there
is corporate favoritism going on with that Ottawa mirror ... our Toronto
and RTP Internal Mirrors are (still) completely empty of this content!
... so, its just an Ottawa favoritism :)

Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Notes
and screenshots of install
Are you (invisibly) using some internal IBM mirror to update from, perhaps?
What if you went to a Starbucks with a laptop and tried it from outside
the firewall? Just a theory...
Since yesterday I have successfully installed all the projects from callisto
Today I encountered a few errors (mostly time and missing files) but nothing
It is unforntunate that you guys have the errors and I don't as I'm looking
at fixing some those bugs... _______________________________________________
