You're talking about download size or that unpacked space on disk? It seems openapidocs jar is not zipped

I guess he's talking about the final structure, the install is only 2 megs bigger. But the installed openapihelp.jar is 44 megs. :)

BTW, it seem to be unusefull, becose i can't find any documented classes in
openapihelp.jar docs. It just empty javadoc stubs....

I did notice a few EAPs ago all documentation was removed ( noticed that
as my RPM .spec was mentioning individual file for it and broke ).

Hopefully the docs are back...

Note that IPP and IG add about 1.4 megs, last time I looked. I hope no one thinks of that as "bloat".

You took up THAT much space for bloatIG & bloatIPP?! Actually, it is
more than worth its weight in bytes, and I'd let you get away with an
order of magnitude more space. :)

Well, the CVS integration seems to have grown to about 500 times its
size (2.3KB -> 1193KB compressed). Didn't you have something to do with
that Thomas?

BTW, if IDEA only uses SSH1 and SSH2 for CVS, following Maverick files
are not needed:
maverick-sftp.jar
sshtools-ant.jar
sshtools-cipher.jar
sshtools-scp.jar
sshtools-sftp.jar
sshtools-zlib.jar

Is there any chance, at least for EAP, that you could package this into
smaller pieces?

Maybe even provide a patch zip file that only contains the files that
actually changed, like the idea.jar file (only 14 MB) and the openapi.jar
file (1.19 MB). I would be willing to bet that I am downloading 60-80%
duplicate files every time. Higher if you consider the % of each modified
jar that doesn't change.

Or perhaps you could put all of the Documentation into a separate download
from the rest. Maybe the openAPI sources too.

That way we could play with the new features without a huge download file
and then get the other stuff only when/if we need to.

For instance compress with 7zip.
