prune published EUPS distrib tags


    • Type: RFC
    • Status: Implemented
    • Resolution: Done
    • Component/s: DM
    • Labels:


      At present, there are over 600 published (eupspkg) distrib tags.


      This is becoming an issue as:

      • eups distrib install downloads all tag files sequentially, resulting in a linear slow down (starting from an empty cache) for each published tag
      • it is becoming difficult for an end user to wade through the webserver directory index to find tags of likely interest (i.e., the weeklies and official releases).
      • as all applicable distrib tags are applied to a locally installed product, infrequently updated products are accumulating a large amount of metadata. Eg.

      I would like to remove all currently published bNNNN format tags and any obvious old "test" tags. In addition, I would like to adopt a policy that weekly release tags may be removed after 1 year. For the moment, that would essentially be all weekly tags prior to 2016.
