      Description

      Eclipse Mars has added support for the compressed form of the content.xml file (content.xml.xz):
      https://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/p2_index#New_in_Mars_Release:_XZ_Example_for_simple_repository

      This means that when a remote update site contains this file, eclipse would use it instead of using the content.xml. The problem is that Artifactory can actually retrieve this file, but because it isn't regarded an expirable resource it will only be a stale copy, which means that the metadata will stay outdated.
