Fork me on GitHub

would like to fetch jars of most recent versions of things on clojars. wrote something to come up with a list of most recent versions of jars based on all-poms.txt content, but not every pom corresponds to a jar, iiuc. could fetch poms and parse to determine jar existence, but seems simpler to just try fetching expecting failures. is it bad form to try to fetch non-existent jars via rsync?


I think rsync can produce a file list by itself.


i tested and got some output indicating that there were attempts to locate particular files but that there was no success for those, though i did end up with what looks like the existing jar files transferred successfully. just concerned whether this might cause unnecessary / costly processing for the server end.
