There were troubles in the past with repository.jboss.org Maven repository, because the server was heavily overloaded by requests from the community. We did quite a lot of optimizations. A part of the load has already been removed by adding Akamai infrastructure in front of product artifacts. Also we added some automatic cleaning tasks to the system and optimized authentication plugin. As a result the server is now quite stable. Calling it fast would be exaggerating though. But there is a hope.....
Next week (2014-07-14 12:00 PM UTC) we scheduled switching the load from one old machine to two brand new servers that would split the load between one another. Why I am writing about it? Well it is a good news for anyone using repository.jboss.org but on the other hand there might be a risk of some issues we are not aware yet.
So I would like to ask project leaders: if you plan some important event on Monday July, 14th (release, conference etc.), please, contact me so we can reschedule the hardware changes to some "safer" date.
