Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6247) artifacts are half a gigabyte
Date Mon, 16 Feb 2015 18:06:12 GMT


Ryan Ernst commented on LUCENE-6247:

I've already given my +1 to removal of javadoc.  Regarding the other two ideas:

I am in favor of removing zip, and only leaving tgz.  I did a quick survey of other apache
projects.  A number I looked at only released with tgz (hadoop, couchdb, cassandra, cordova).
 Others I looked at were the main httpd project, which released source as tgz but binary as
zip, and Harmony which had both tgz and zip. Flex and Geronimo also released zip and labelled
as "windows" and tgz and labelled it for mac and linux.  IMO, if someone cannot handle extracting
a tgz on windows, they can't handle running Solr.

For removing dependencies, I'm in favor of this:
bq. We can have the build emit information to a .txt or whatever describing exactly which
versions we have tested (for people not using a dependency manager to get these artifacts
from maven).

>             Project: Lucene - Core
>          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.
