Subject RE: Problem when Archiva cleans up snapshots of released artifacts
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2013 20:37:35 GMT
We have different repositories for snapshots and releases.  It looks
like maybe when Archiva deletes old snapshots because a release exists,
it leaves metadata files sitting around.  Maybe that's what is causing
the error?

We turned off the "delete released snapshots" option and then were able
to upload additional snapshots, so that resolves our immediate issue.
It just means that we will have higher disk space requirements because
of the old snapshots which will stick around forever (our retention rule
is to delete snapshots after 2 days, but always keep the most recent 2
snapshots regardless of age).

A bit weird.
As normally this option doesn't have any effect on the artifacts
deployment parts.
Do you deploy snapshots and release to the same repository ?
