|[cross-project-issues-dev] Removal of the Koneki RC1 repository|
Hi,in https://hudson.eclipse.org/hudson/view/Repository%20Aggregation/job/juno.runAggregator/476 I contributed our RC3 repo. In this particular build that was the only contribution and all the preceeding builds succeeded. This new build failed but it seems that the Koneki project has silently deleted its RC1 repo while it was still being used by the aggregation. Only the next build picked up the new RC3 contribution of Koneki.
It strikes me that it's bad practice to remove milestone repos at all, but especially before the aggregation has properly picked up newer contributions.
It happened to me from time to time that something in the contributed repos changed (including their removal) that made the aggregation fail without any change in the contribution files. Please have in mind that this can cause a lot of panic and extra investigation work for others.
