Re: [mmt-dev] ATL downloads cleanup


I cleaned both downloads and archive.
I tried to change the permission to 774 but it didn't work (I did a "chmod -r 774 *" from mmt/atl). Do you know how I can achieve this ? I'm not very used to those commands :-/

Also, there is a problem with the archives displayed on the download page : none of the links leads to something downloadable. Do you know what can go wrong ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi William

Protections are more generous now. Setting 775 was easiest. Please trim to at most 774 when you're done.

Thanks for you work & hints.

* modeling/m2m : I deleted all the remaining builds on modeling/m2m/atl

* mmt/atl : I began to clean mmt/atl but it seems that I have not the permission to delete some builds, e.g. :

    drwxr-sr-x+ 4 ewillink modeling.mmt 4096 2010-06-08 02:49 S201006071047

I think you just have to allow the group to write on that directory. Most of the builds on mmt/atl have this issue.

* archive : same issue as in mmt/atl

Hi William

I was waiting for your RC3 before cleaning up the obsolete downloads/modeling/m2m but there seems to be no ATL RC3, so I've tried cleaning up anyway.

I moved the missing ATL RC1 from modeling/m2m to mmt.

Rather than delete outright, I moved downloads/modeling/m2m/atl to /home/data/httpd/ but ran into permission errors on the delete so half the deletes failed.

The overall size is huge: 1.2G was copied, of which 0.5G was not deleted.

I see no point keeping milestones and release candidates for previous releases, and little point in more than a couple of milestones plus release candidates for the current release.

I see little point keeping more than the final service release for the last couple of historic builds.

So on downloads, it is worth trimming to 3.3.0RC2, 3.3.0RC1, 3.2.1, 3.1.1

and on archive 3.2.0, 3.1.0, 3.0.*, 2.*, 1.*.

Please try to keep N-builds and I-builds under control.

My move saved 0.7G. Using your permissions you can save another 0.5G from m2m/atl. Tidying up mmt/atl may save another 0.8G. Tidying up the archive should trim it by at least 0.5G as well.

All in all, ATL should be able to add 2 G to the 55 G saved by other projects. Rather a large number for a project with quite modest download size.

I'll investigate why the archives do not show up on the Downloads page in the same way as e.g. MDT/OCL; may be I just need to wait for a slow cache refresh.
