RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Question about Build ID's

Hi Thomas,

My question was about *caching* and not about *changing* :)

I'm aware that the bucky builder doesn't change anything.
But does it have a cache of old artifacts which it uses
in case the id of an artifact is unchanged (although the
contents may be changed)? 

My guess was yes, since I heard rumors of similar p2 
caching mechanisms on the eclipse releng-dev mailing 
list. Actually this caching was a reason why several
of the Eclipse Platform components had to tag their
artifacts even for null changes, just in order to make
sure p2 metadata is regenerated properly rather than
taking it from a cache.

Cheers,
