> PMC members,
> As the ASF grows in size, so does the total size of the distribution
> artefacts we ask our mirror community to support for us. The larger this
> total size, the greater the strain on both ASF infrastructure and on the
> mirroring system.
> As per the release guidelines [1], only current releases should be
> available at http://www.apache.org/dist/. Monitoring of
> http://www.apache.org/dist/ [2] shows that some projects are not
> removing old releases. This is placing an unnecessary strain on both ASF
> infrastructure and on our mirror volunteers.
> Thanks to those PMCs that have been removing old releases from their
> distribution directory. The infrastructure appreciates you keeping on
> top of this.
> PMCs that have not been removing old releases are required to review
> their current distribution directory and remove any old releases.
> - PMCs using svnpubsub should remove old releases via svn.
> - PMCs not using svnpubsub should remove old releases directly from
> /www/www.apache.org/dist/<tlp> on people.apache.org at. Note that any
> deletions may take up to 24 hours to replicate to http://www.apache.org/dist
> In both cases it may take longer for changes to replicate to mirrors.
> Old releases removed from http://www.apache.org/dist/ are not lost.
> Release are automatically copied to http://archive.apache.org/dist/ and
> are never deleted.
> This inevitably raises the question what is a current release and what
> is an old release. To some extent, this varies from project to project
> but typically it amounts to the following:
> a) latest release of the current branch
> b) latest stable release of the current branch
> c) latest stable release of previous branches
> It is hard to give concrete examples that apply to all projects since
> each project is free to use its own release numbering scheme. However, a
> project that includes versions 2.1.0, 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 in its release
> directory almost certainly has some cleaning up to do. A project that
> includes 1.0.6, 1.1.5 and 2.0.7 probably doesn't.
> If you have any questions about how to manage your distribution
> directory please contact the infrastructure team.
> Thanks in advance,
> Mark
> on behalf of the ASF Infrastructure Team
