Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Can we please stop using composite repos?

Can the composite only include the current/latest version, or can someone educate me as to the value of having multiple versions?

It's a really good question.  It just seems to be a "habit" to compose multiple children, usually with some restriction on the number of children, e.g., the most recent n children.  But personally, just to make everything faster for the client and less overhead for the server, I would prefer to use a repo with a single child with the most recent version.  

So what prompted everyone to have this habit?  

AFAIK, it comes from the simrel process of "making visible" the repository to the world (after the quiet / mirroring time). See code comment in
