Hi,

The problem is that dist.apache.org can only be used to deliver Apache-license compliant software.


A possible solution would be to use Maven Central as a way to deliver updates for non AL compliant software.

Cheers,
Antonio

Actually, using dist.apache.org seems more logical in a way.

These are modules for *all* NetBeans *users*.

Maven Central really serves a (much smaller) subset of NetBeans users.

Hi all,
So we uploaded the platform 9.0-alpha binaries to https://dist.apache.org
[1]
As a consequence the artifacts are now available through the Apache mirror
network.
The URL to download these artifacts can be constructed using the
https://www.apache.org/dyn/mirrors/mirrors.cgi script, setting the
parameters "action=download" and "filename=..." as in [2].
This "mirrors.cgi" script automatically selects the user's closest Apache
mirror to download from. That's handy.
Would it be possible to generate our update center xml & nbms and upload
that to https://dist.apache.org along with the binary and source
artifacts?
That way we could use the same "mirrors.cgi" script as an Update Center
url, and users would benefit from the Apache mirror network to download
stuff more easily.
Would that be a viable solution for NetBeans-330 "NetBeans 9.0 UC hosted
on Apache infra" [3]?

Yes, NBMs shall be hosted on Apache infra. Rather than having them on
dist.apache.org, my preferred solution would be to upload each NetBeans
module (together with its JAR and NBM) to Maven repository. There already
is a script that can do it (see http://bits.netbeans.org/nexus/), so it may
be just a matter of setting things up...
