|[eclipse.org-architecture-council] [Bug 315073] New: Duplication of bits stressing mirror sites|
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=315073 Product/Component: Community / Architecture Council Summary: Duplication of bits stressing mirror sites Classification: Eclipse Foundation Product: Community Version: unspecified Platform: PC OS/Version: Linux Status: NEW Severity: normal Priority: P3 Component: Architecture Council AssignedTo: eclipse.org-architecture-council@xxxxxxxxxxx ReportedBy: denis.roy@xxxxxxxxxxx Worldwide download mirror sites enable the Eclipse Foundation to efficiently distribute Eclipse bits with moderate costs. However, despite my many efforts at constructing an exclusion list to filter Nightly and temporary builds, many mirrors are beginning to consider the disk space requirements for an Eclipse mirror to be excessive, as witnessed on the eclipse-mirrors mailing list: http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/eclipse-mirrors/msg00569.html There may be many factors influencing the amount of disk space we occupy on mirrors: -> All-in-one ZIPs -- seemingly useless bit duplication -> .jar and .jar.pack.gz -- bit duplication that saves bandwidth at the expense of disk space -> Stable/Release Candidate builds that linger in the mirrored area for weeks after they are pertinent -> Lack of naming convention for directories means it's difficult to construct an effective exclusion list for Nightly builds that covers everyone's nightly builds -> Committer indifference towards cleaning up disk space after releases So I call on the AC to help me prevent a collapse of our network of download mirrors. -- Configure bugmail: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: ------- You are the assignee for the bug.
