Description Jesse Glick 2002-08-10 04:43:35 UTC
I tried to get the Metrics module (0.6 version)
from the Alpha update server, but the download
fails. Possibly a bad URL. dev_alpha_daily.ent
curiously points to

which seems to give a 404.

is I think the correct URL.

I updated the distribution URL in build.xml as suggested.
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2003-04-21 20:28:06 UTC
I think this is indeed FIXED, though Tom's patch probably had nothing
to do with it.

Explanation: look at some other module, e.g. jarpackager/build.xml:

<property name="dist.base" value=""/>

Which hasn't changed in ages. (Note that this nonsense distribution
base has been the same since NB 3.2 or 3.3 or something - we keep
changing our mind about what NB 4.0 is! A lousy name to use for a
download URL.) Nonetheless, in dev_alpha_daily.ent, there is the
correct URL:


The build process for daily NBMs presumably overrides ${dist.base} so
the value in the build script is irrelevant.

In fact dev_alpha_daily.ent (and r35_alpha_daily.ent) both point to

already, and this does in fact seem to be the 0.6.1 version, as
advertised. This has been true since Jan 09 2003, but no one bothered
to update this issue to say so.
