Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6247) artifacts are half a gigabyte
Date Mon, 16 Feb 2015 17:13:13 GMT


Alexandre Rafalovitch commented on LUCENE-6247:

(meta-level comment)
bq. LUCENE-5589

I see intermingling of the target audiences in these issues. There is issue that more affects
developers (smoke test, repeated downloads of RCs, etc) and there are issues that affect final
users and those downstream with the public release (tgz vs zip, Javadoc, etc).

Both camps are in favor of smaller downloads I am sure, but not being explicit about it is
what's muddling the discussion. For my target audience (users), any incremental improvement
(decrease in size) would be good news as long as it does not break anything. Hence, that pushes
Javadoc as the most important issue, even if it is not the maximum impact on size overall.

>             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.
