Subject Re: Testing of a mirrored Eclipse P2 repository
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2011 13:02:18 GMT
After further investigation, I had a corrupted jar in the update I have build, probably corrupted
when I uploaded it since I had a quite terrible connection at that time. The hash was not
OK. Too bad Eclipse get crazy about it and redownloaded again and again...

It looks good now.

It references my two snapshot builds, plus some inexistent p2 repo on,
and I have my snapshot builds declared as mirrored on the apache mirrors.

there obviously nothing. That's OK. At some point it ends up trying to get the artifact not
from the mirror but from people.a.o. The plugins gets downloaded. Still OK.

the plugins about 10 times from people.a.o. Then it tried to get from another mirror. Then
again 10 times download from people. And again and again.... for about 20 minutes...... until
I canceled the install.....

are missing ?

without archive.a.o, etc....
