Re: [p2-dev] How is the agent cache used?

The repository in question resides at Eclipse.org and hasn't been touched since July 2009. This is the URL:

http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/amalgam/dsltk/downloads/drops/S20090703-0844/content.jar

Could it be that it's picked from different mirrors?

I don't think so. The cache filename is based entirely on the name and URL 
of the remote repository file. If you update the remote file timestamp it 
will cause the local cache file to be overwritten with the new contents, 
but won't create a separate filename.

Guessing that this could happen if a repo has exactly the same content 
but has updated timestamp ...

Buckminster now uses it's own agent and i started to look at what p2 
stores in the cache that it keeps under the directory <agent root>/ 
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.repository/cache. After loading some 
repositories I found two files named:

content643182476.jar
content2050526759.jar

They were both of the exact same size. Content looked very similar 
to so I checked the md5sum. It's also exactly the same. Should this 
ever happen?
