|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Maintenance Repository Empty - its back|
For Trace Compass, we use the maintenance repository for our Mars builds in order to build against and tests properly with up-to-date dependencies (more up to date than releases/mars anyway). This way we can find dependencies issues or regressions much quicker. Also, updating all repository URLs in our target every milestone would be pretty impractical. I think it would be very useful to keep the maintenance repository, at least in a non-empty state. I understand that this is not meant to be a stable repository but it would be useful if it was not ephemeral.

Apologies for not noticing. Thanks for pointing it out.
I will say, however, I would not recommend building against "maintenance". By definition, it is ephemeral -- not a usual persistent p2 repository. Hard to say what state it may be in at the time of your build.
But, thanks again.

Uh this is not good. Stardust is using this repo for the upcoming RC2 contribution for Eclipse Mars SR1. So this means that we cannot run the build. Does we have an alternative URL which contains the latest simrel contributions for Mars SR1 RC2?
