Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] peer-to-peer downloads (ECF)

Hi Alessandro,

The mirroring is being worked on now via the following bug:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=207802#c25

Short story: mirroring will start simple (i.e. use Eclipse Foundation mirroring strategy) with the option to replace with more/better/specific mirroring strategies. If you are able/willing to contribute to this work I'm sure it would be most welcome.

Thanks,
I will keep monitoring discovery/mirroring work.

However, I am unsure on how this can fit the bill. How smart is mirroring?
Let say that we have two clients on the LAN, both of them mirroring a 1.0 central repository. They wake up in the morning and discover that the central repository is now at version 1.1. What will they do? If both of them start downloading stuff from the WAN to go to version 1.1, then - in this scenario - having local mirrors will not help.


Best regards,
Sandro
