Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-3472) configuration possibilities to limit size of local repository
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2008 16:01:14 GMT


Andrus Adamchik commented on MNG-3472:

I take issue with Brett's initial comment: "I think this is best handled by external tools."...
On a local machine Maven is *the* tool to manage repository. At least the way things stand
now... I guess since the issue got closed, the easiest solution in the spirit of open source
would be to write some kind of a "maven-vacuum-repo-plugin"  (something I may end up doing,
but no time guarantees)...

> it would be great to make repository-size configurable, for instance by setting the maximum
number of downloads of a snapshot-version to be kept. thus the explosion of local repository
size can be reduced.
> especially when you are working with many in-house multi-module projects which are marked
as snapshots before released , can increase repository size significantly.
