#457 creating dist-repos can expire regular (non-dist) repos for same tag
Closed: Fixed 2 years ago Opened 2 years ago by mikem.

If you create a dist repo from a build tag, then the regular repo for that tag can be marked expired, possibly causing trouble with builds.

This is because dist repos also live in the repo table. When they are marked done, then older repos for the same tag are marked expired. However, regular builds only use regular repos, so when they look for a current repo, they may not find one.


We expect to change the way dist repos work in 1.14, and I think that will solve this problem.

In the meantime, I recommend that folks avoid using build tags for dist repos.

Since this is currently on a branch with the other dist-repo work (#409), and isn't particularly critical, I am also deferring it to 1.16
