Re: [eclipse-dev] [platform-releng-dev] Stop producing milestones p2 repository

It is ok not to have them in a different repository but it should be available over the full release cycle. As currently only Monday's build is available on  and the milestones builds happen on Wednesday/Thursday we will not have access to M1 build during M3 or RC phase.
If there is a regression how are we going to compare the behaviour with the promoted build?
Thanks & Regards,

+1 - mostly I only consume I-builds

-1 - but when there is a problem it is important to have a stable stepping stone

The problem is that not enough I-builds are always kept to guarantee that the milestone contribution is available, or indeed tagged in any recognisable way.

-1 again N-builds have already gone, so what is the difference between first attempt experiment and last attempt production ready? There must be a level at which accidents happen but are not exposed to all project N-builds.

+1 for using I-Builds only.

Some time ago I proposed to use non-versioned update site URL [1]. Since we are now releasing more often and the concern of regular URL updates for consumers is more visible, maybe it would be good to revisit the idea of non-versioned URL and use that more often?

Best regards,

+1. I personally never use milestones; being on latest I-Build provides a shorter feedback loop IMO, so if milestones do take some effort, while we have already something that provide a faster feedback loop and more agility for less effort; it's probably worth dropping the extra steps.
