If this list is sorted, I think the top 40 files or so (down to the first zip) fit well under 50Mb so uploading them should be easy. Perhaps P2 meta-data should be prioritized for upload to cloudfront given the request frequency for those files?
p2 metadata seems to be scattered across our directory tree, making it difficult to strategically redirect content. It's also easy to draw up a plan 5 days after the release. I mean, would you have expected /tools/mylyn/update/e3.4/content.jar to be a top-3 downloaded file?
But all in all, as I said earlier, I think the process when we release needs to be improved. We can't open the taps until we are absolutely sure that the infrastructure is ready to take the hit.
Sorry, but you are stating the obvious. I would not deliberately open the taps if I didn't think we were ready. Really. We did mirror tests. But then we had one of those unforeseen problems (see bug 289408 comment 37). The problem is that there are many moving parts to these releases, and we seem unable to foresee those unforeseen problems.
I know this is frustrating. I've spent the last five years trying to make these releases as painless as possible, but as long as our servers and your code keep evolving, there are always going to be some unexpected results.
