Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6247) artifacts are half a gigabyte
Date Sat, 14 Feb 2015 18:35:12 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-6247:

It would be good to get opinions on the other lucene changes here. Consensus on removing javadocs
from the binary release is great, since its ~23MB we don't need, but the other proposed changes
really get the size to something reasonable.

For example once we remove the javadocs, .zip and .tar.gz are on par size-wise, so I propose
to remove one of them. I do not care which one it is, but I don't think having both is really
helpful for lucene. The third party jars are also very large, so we should discuss that too.

NOTE: I didn't do experiments with solr, its an app so it has more complexities here. I am
sure the packaging may need to be different there.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Robert Muir

>             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.
