Re: [p2-dev] Use of uncompressed metadata repositories

Can you be more specific about concerns that you have?

Hi folks,

I am trying go get a feel for how widely used uncompressed metadata
repositories are.

A typical content.xml file contains many copies of identical license
text. Memory use is not an issue since the implementation uses a
StringPool to extern string references. Compressed repositories do not
present an issue for disk foot print or network traffic as the
content.xml compresses extremely well, typically 95% or more.

However, uncompressed metadata repositories may pose a significant
concern here if they are widely used.

So does anybody have an opinion on how widely used uncompressed
repositories are?
