I would like to use the generic web repository connector, but I don't know
how to install it.

First, the web site refers to a download section where you should be able
to download it, but I can't find it there. Very annoying. Maybe somebody
could update the site?

After some googling, I found that you're supposed to use Eclipse's update
manager to "http://download.eclipse.org/tools/mylyn/update/extras" (with
or without a trailing slash). When I do that, I get the message:

"No features found on the selected site(s). Choose a different site or
category."

I've also unchecked "Ignore features not applicable to this environment",
but it didn't help.

How can I install the generic connector??

Hi Tom,

Were you been able to resolve your issues? The error message you're
getting usually indicates that all features already installed locally
and update manager can't find anything new. You can check if connector
is available from the new "New Task Repository" wizard that you can call
from the "Task Repositories" view. See user guide at
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Mylyn_User_Guide#Generic_Web_Reposit ory_Connector

Note that web connector is being referred as "Generic Issue Trackers"
on the update site, and we have a bug report to address the naming
issues, please feel free to comment there:

205343: [web connector] stabilize name for web repository connector
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=205343

Also, please feel free to comment on the following bug report in
regards to graduating web connector from the sandbox/incubator area:
