These indices are out of date:

Edit: they're 404's now.

There was some discussion on this in the infra channel link link

Main takeaways from that discussion:

  • generating the index was taking to long, the recommendation is to use the AWS S3 List Objects API
  • listing all objects using the AWS S3 List Objects API takes a very long time because you'll be rate-limited after a few requests
  • rustup currently doesn't use the index, but also rustup currently doesn't have a way to list which toolchains are installable

I think there should be an index of at least all available toolchains, and preferably also for each toolchain which components exist.

The index.txt is now, index.html is still working for me, but may be cached?

Edit: yup, getting dead links now too.

I'm not sure if this is the main thread of this issue, but hopefully an observer here can redirect me if not.

Is this comment saying that removing the index was deliberate? That index is the suggested means of finding older releases on the other installation methods page.

Past releases can be found in the archives.
