Re: [eclipse.org-committers] Action required: download.eclipse.org mirror size
Moving P2 repos to archive is unhelpful for a user who attempts a
Maven build from the archive repo.
The first Bug above is a Tycho fix for the original OCL Bug

p2.mirrorsURL so that the archived repo behaves just as if the
archiving had stripped the p2.mirrorsURL.

which means unnecessary expense for the Eclipse Foundation.
