Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] The Eclipse IDE 2019-12 release is available now!
It's no doubt currently not helping the download.eclipse.org server's
performance that the download.php query appears to know about so few
mirrors for yesterday's release:
Bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=558462 is open with
more details for this additional problem.
Meanwhile the other problem continues:

It appears we need to wait for Canada to wake up. :-(

Of course no great release is complete without an awesome new glitch.
For the 2019-06 release, download.eclipse.org transparently redirected
to archive.eclipse.org so loading

That wasn't a good thing. The transparent redirection behavior
(including transparent redirection to mirrors) has since been disabled
for a number of additional reasons.
For the 2019-12 release, a HEAD request to
return stale information. I.e., the following code:
URL url = new
HttpURLConnection openConnection =
int responseCode = openConnection.getResponseCode();
System.err.println("url=" + url + " response=" + responseCode + "
lastModified=" + openConnection.getLastModified() + " contentLength="
prints the following result:
response=200 lastModified=1575643878000 contentLength=425
Unfortunately, p2 and the Eclipse Installer's infrastructure rely on
proper/correct server responses. The net effect of this incorrect
response is to indicate that it's valid to use a locally cached
version of compositeContent.jar, if it exists, which will find only
M2, M3, and RC1, which still exist on the server. I don't know if
this will make installs fail or if it will make installs install RC1
instead of R, but clearly both are very bad. The average typical user
will likely not have loaded
http://download.eclipse.org/technology/epp/packages/2019-12 before, so
for those it won't be a problem. But for those with a cache, this
will be a problem.
I've opened https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=558452 to
track this problem. It needs to be fixed ASAP. Furthermore, I hope
that the problem is not fixed simply by manually flushing some cache
because we don't want to see this problem ever again. This resource
was deleted 19 hours ago and the server, in general, needs to return a
404 for HEAD/GET requests as soon as possible after any resource has
