Subject [jira] [Created] (UIMA-3534) better Eclipse plugin version management
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2014 19:23:57 GMT
Marshall Schor created UIMA-3534:

             Summary: better Eclipse plugin version management
                 Key: UIMA-3534
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-3534
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Brainstorming
          Components: Eclipse plugins
            Reporter: Marshall Schor
            Priority: Minor

Our current Eclipse update site design has one file tree -and under that, several individual
big-project (e.g. uimaj, ruta, etc) subsites, each having an independent update site just
for that project.

The subsites have (today) all the versions of the plugins/features. As time marches on, the
subsites can grow large due to older versions.  I think we need a way to follow the spirit
of Apache mirroring, and keep just the current or active releases on the mirrors, and have
a seamless way to access the older things on the apache archive.

There may be a fairly painless way to do this if we can have each subsite "link" to the archive
site, and let Eclipse do the merging.   It would be good if we could set this up so the normal
way of managing this (i.e., you delete the older releases from the dist.apache.org/ svn, and
the disappear from the mirrors, but are still on the archive site.
