|[cross-project-issues-dev] Release engineers, buildmeisters: New storage devices|
Release engineers, buildmeisters,|
We have successfully deployed our new storage devices. download.eclipse.org and archive.eclipse.org now reside on a 16-disk, 4 Terabyte array. With this, I'd like to remind you of two things:
1. We always need to keep the download.eclipse.org footprint as small as we can, as the contents is mirrored to servers worldwide. Only high-traffic, recent downloads should be stored here. Older, non-current files must be moved (not copied) to archive.eclipse.org.
2. With this new array, we have lost our ability to freeze the download.eclipse.org content for major releases. This is only relevant to those top-10 projects whose download pages are dynamically generated by reading the contents of a directory structure. Please see my previous posting about this  and you can also use this bug as an example of a fix that gets our thumbs-up.
Thanks for putting up with our recent shenanigans. Eclipse.org is back up at full speed now.
