Subject Incubator Repositories
Date Wed, 16 Aug 2006 19:12:20 GMT
On general@incubator it was decided that they wanted separate Maven
repositories for incubating releases. As that seemed fine by Noel,
I've gone ahead and asked Joe to make the directories.

Policy on said repositories is pretty unknown at the moment. I've said
that it shouldn't be for snapshot releases or 3rd party; ie) they
should still use the snapshot repositories for that. The aim is not
for it to be rsync'd to ibiblio - they want people to have to actively
use the incubating repository and not just pick the bits up from

This means we have another pair of repositories that we are hosting as
opposed to rsyncing to ibiblio, again with low bandwidth expectation.
I suspect I've stepped on Joshua's toes there - sorry Joshua I wasn't
thinking. If we find that the bandwidth is surprisingly high, then I
think we should talk with general@incubator about a need to rsync to
ibiblio. Otherwise we should see how it goes and it can be another
example to learn from with respect to Stefano's previously raised
topic of hosting a full repository ourselves.
