Subject [jira] Commented: (MEV-621) Clean up maven repository
Date Sat, 28 Mar 2009 09:41:12 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann commented on MEV-621:

Given that developer groups usually require only a very small fraction of stuff from central,
the recommended way is to use a [repository manager|].

> Hi All!
> The Maven repository is getting bigger and bigger and I think there must be some restrictions
when adding components (read jars, wars,ears etc) to it. I tried to make a mirror via rsync
and got a lot of example wars, example jars etc. Why are there war-files in the Maven repo
at all? Why does Geronimo have all their jar files in the global maven repository? Wouldn't
it be better to have a spearate repo for non-util products like Apache Tomcat, Apache Geronimo,
JBoss, etc., etc.
> I agree to the fact that the repository shall contain most of the components you might
need in your development but I don't need war files, I dont need example files and most probably
I don't need app server jar files. What I need is software components from the repo - not
fully functional programs that I can download from resp. vendor page. These fully functional
program files are taking up so much HD space and is probably a huge reason why a rsync process
will conatin synciong for hours.
> So my question is - is there a job to be done here or am I just wrong (crazy) in my opinion
> Kind regards
