Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Thanks for M3, on to M4!

From past experience the more repos the more confusion over what goes where and how long it is supposed to be there.

It appears that the repo is a composite of the different milestone repos, perhaps the webmaster can exclude from mirroring the Mn-1 and Mn-2 "sub"-repos?  Its a bit of work but the settings only need to be tweaked once every 6 weeks or so.

With space being a real issue (especially when mirroring) why not switch to a 2 repo system. would always contain the latest milestone, and only the one.  That way all the products' early adopters would not have to deal with the complexity of multiple repos/to many choices.

Then, an indigo milestone repo could be created to hold all of the Indigo milestones.  This second repo would be for those that need to go back for testing purposes, or people like me that have a 1-off problem that I haven't quite solved yet.  We all know we have to take extra steps, anyway.  As an added bonus, the webmasters can specifically exclude this rather large repo from mirroring ... on the expectation it's lower traffic than the current milestone of Indigo.  Indigo gets released, milestone repo goes away.

What do you think, should I open a bug to discuss?
