Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Managing repositories referenced by simrel .b3aggrcon files

What harm in uploading last RC build to the final release location
before 6/25 (or whatever the date is)?

locations, and remove the old locations, before the release date ...
others leave the old in place and don't change the aggrcon file until
after 6/27 "just in case. But, then they should shortly after the release.

To summarize ... or repeat ...

It is fine to update the b3aggrcon file during quiet week, to point to
an equivalent (final) repo if you'd like to do it "early" so you can get
rid of "old" copy. Ideally, those that do this,  would use the "Validate
Aggregation" function from their own local b3 aggregator editor to make
sure there are no typos or anything.

It is important to make sure the b3aggrcon files point to something that
allows a "quick last minute rebuild" to be performed, if needed.

I have a question regarding proper strategy for managing repositories on
the download server that are referenced by simrel .b3aggrcon files.

I just updated Sapphire contribution to reference [1], which is the
final contribution but we aren’t officially calling it final yet. Per
Final Daze document, on 6-25, I will copy this repository to [2] to make
the release official. Then I’d like to clean up old 0.5 pre-release
downloads. How do I safely do that since RC4 is still referenced by a
.b3aggrcon file? Since further aggregator builds aren’t expected, do I
update .b3aggrcon file on 6-25 to point to [2] and remove RC4 download?
Do I wait until after 6-27 to do this?

Thanks,

- Konstantin
