Re: [p2-dev] "artifact.reference" in metadata as a result of mirror call

Anyone know where 'artifact.reference' property usually comes from in metadata?
And is it really possible that it caused p2.director to download using that link?

I looked at svn repository artifacts.jar, but it looks very usual. I also looked into one of plugin jars, hoping that there's some p2.inf file, but didn't found anything like this. I believe that my environment wasn't changing recently, and only part that has changed was their repo...

I'm mirroring some repository using ant mirror task. But recently, instead of a local copy, I started getting "artifact.reference" entries in my mirror metadata. Like this:

ÂÂ Â<artifact classifier='osgi.bundle' id='org.eclipse.team.svn.help' version='0.7.9.I20101203-1700'>
ÂÂ Â Â<properties size='1'>
ÂÂ Â Â Â<property name='download.size' value='2974696'/>
ÂÂ Â Â</properties>
ÂÂ Â Â<repositoryProperties size='1'>
ÂÂ Â Â Â<property name='artifact.reference' value='http://download.eclipse.org/technology/subversive/0.7/update-site/plugins/org.eclipse.team.svn.help_0.7.9.I20101203-1700.jar'/>
ÂÂ Â Â</repositoryProperties>
ÂÂ Â</artifact>

My local mirror is required to speedup the builds, but due to the references in metadata, artifacts are downloaded from orig. repository.

My ant task call looks like this:


<repository location="${localRepo}" append="true" />


<repository location="http://download.eclipse.org/technology/subversive/0.7/update-site/" />

<repository location="http://community.polarion.com/projects/subversive/download/eclipse/2.0/update-site/" />


<iu id="org.eclipse.team.svn.feature.group" version=""/>

<iu id="org.eclipse.team.svn.mylyn.feature.group" version=""/>

<iu id="org.polarion.eclipse.team.svn.connector.feature.group" version=""/>

<iu id="org.polarion.eclipse.team.svn.connector.svnkit15.feature.group" version=""/>

<iu id="org.polarion.eclipse.team.svn.connector.svnkit16.feature.group" version=""/>


This happens only for the SVN repo (http://download.eclipse.org/technology/subversive/0.7/update-site). Using the same process several other repos are being mirrored, but with no such "artifact.reference" things.

Could someone explain where does this "artifact.reference" come from and how to get rid of it?
