RE: [p2-dev] P2 Mirror Application fails to mirror Eclipse repo

Just out of interest I used the org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.generator.EclipseGenerator application to regenerate the metadata for my mirror of the Eclipse repository. Here is what I got (again different). I have included the original results and added a 3rd line for each file: generated3 refers to the version generated using the above application:
 
 
Eclipse repo:
------------
artifacts.xml
- downloaded: 663,552 bytes; artifacts size='1674'
- generated1:  831,488 bytes; artifacts size='1829'
- generated2:  741,376 bytes; artifacts size='1671'
- generated3:  258,048 bytes; artifacts size='717'
 
content.xml
- downloaded: 3,956,736 bytes; units size='1373'
- generated1: 4,001,792 bytes; units size='1373'
- generated2: 4,001,792 bytes; units size='1373'
- generated3: 3,158,016 bytes; units size='854'
 
I added the mirror site with newly generated metadata to my P2 UI. It loaded fine.

Andrew,
 
I was using org.eclipse.equinox.p2.tools.MirrorApplication. The version was from the cvs trunk about 3 months ago. I checked out the org.eclipse.equinox.p2.tools project and exported the MirrorApplication plugin into the dropins folder of my p2 agent download. It was not bundled with the p2 agent as per this bug:
 
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=237100
 
I do not believe that any work has been done on this project/plugin in the meantime. I synced up regularly and did not notice any changes coming down. Do you know of any?
 
I was using the org.eclipse.equinox.p2.tools.MirrorApplication to mirror the eclipse and Ganymede repositories:
My comparisons were between metadata that had been generated by the MirrorApplication in the mirror versions and metadata that had been manually downloaded from the original sites (above) using a web browser.

This is curious.

What version of the mirror application are you using? There's a version in the p2.tools package that doesn't really work and I [reletively] recently made some major bug fixes for the versions stored in the metadata.repository and artifact.repository packages.

Also, are these repositories generated by the MirrorApplication or pre-existing?
