Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6247) artifacts are half a gigabyte
Date Sat, 14 Feb 2015 17:34:16 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-6247:

As far as zip/tgz, I think Lucene as a developer library only needs one... but Solr as a product
should keep the zip. My heliosearch download counts have the .zip outnumbering the .tgz...
anyone know the counts for the ASF downloads?

I don't know this, but I want to point out one fact. Once the javadocs situation is fixed,
the size of .tgz vs .zip is essentially the same (see my numbers above). I think thats because,
once the javadocs thing is fixed, then zips/tgzs mostly contain already-compressed jars so
it does not matter, its just a convenient packaging format.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Robert Muir
>            Priority: Blocker
>             Fix For: 5.0
> This is a growing problem and now, its spun out of control.
> The latest release artifacts are half a gigabyte. sorry, I am against adding more retries
to the smoke tester and continuing down the same path (LUCENE-6231).
> Instead I open this blocker issue to discuss fixing this. Whenever i tried to fix it
before (e.g. removing zips), people complained at me "what are you trying to fix" and wouldn't
let me minimize it in the slightest.
> Now the problem is clear, we have a blocker issue to discuss it.
