      Description

      Apache projects should use mirrors for downloads. We use them for normal download pages, and also for Eclipse update site.

      A mirror can be down. On the normal download page that is no big problem, a reload of the page chooses another mirror.

      But with Eclipse update site it is different: If the mirror is not available it just shows "No content", only the log shows an error. Even worse is that Eclipse remembers the URL and reuses it. I had bad luck to get apache.myamplifiers.com (INFRA-9804) which isn't working, and also after Eclipse restart it continued to contact that site.

      We have to investigate a better way how to use mirros for the update site. Maybe it can be configured that it isn't retried.

      In the meantime I'll configure the update site to use "www.apache.org/dist", this will at least distribute downloads to two servers.
