Re: [eclipse-dev] Fwd: I-builds contains multiple builds


It seems that the original purpose has been lost and that with milestones becoming less significant, it needs restoring.

My understanding is that N-builds are regular, typically nightly, builds of the state of the art and that I-builds are an intermediate/interim/integration state for some significant advance. Since I-builds are occasional and significant they deserve to be kept till the next milestone.

The platform seems to be using I-builds for the traditional purpose of N-builds but persisting as for I-builds. Integrators are forced to download far too often.

Hi folk,

(resending to hopefully more appropriate list?)

I was wondering why the I-builds (likewise for older versions) contain multiple builds in them and not just the latest?

What is the use case for a consumer wanting either a mix of of I-build versions or not the latest one?

(PS I am asking, because I want to change CDT builds to track I-builds now that Milestones are not really what they used to be, and I am also just interested. A similar question exists for me about the simrel release repos containing multiple versions too, but that also seems less important going forward as it is less likely to happen.)
