|[eclipse.org-committers] Action required: download.eclipse.org mirror size|
As download.eclipse.org is mirrored
worldwide, is it important to keep your download footprint to a
minimum. Most of our mirror sites are also host to a
number of OSS projects, and enterprise disk space is not cheap.
Some strategies to note:
- Nightly, weekly, milestone and RC
builds should be deleted
- Older releases must be moved to archive.eclipse.org. If moved into the same directory structure, links typically do not need to be updated, as our 404 Not Found handlers will look for the file in the archives before throwing the error.
- Please use this compiled Archive index
(courtesy of the Oomph team) to find your project's mirror
The risk of not cleaning up is
significant. Mirrors, looking to liberate disk space, will
simply purge the worst offenders, and with fewer mirror sites
offering Eclipse bits, our servers must handle more downloads,
which means unnecessary expense for the Eclipse Foundation.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
