[The eclipse.p2 newsgroup seems to be completely silent.
Therefore I retry on this group.]

I recently installed a feature and it's plugins to a p2-enabled RCP
application with success: Both the feature and the plugins are installed
as expected in the plugins and feature folder of the RCP app.
As suggested I added the ".feature.group" string as IU identifier.
After this I tried an uninstall process, where I changed only the
following lines:

1) I replaced the call argument

-installIU someid.feature.group

by

-uninstallIU someid.feature.group

2) I did not list the -repository argument

This deinstallation seems to have succeeded (no error message or log
file) and as expected the before installed feature is no longer existing
in the features folder. *But* the plugins are still part of the plugins
folder. Is this a known and expected behaviour? Personally I would
strongly appreciate to have the plugins removed as well. Is there some
additional call argument necessary to realize that?

Thanks & Greetings from Bremen,

Daniel Krügler

if you start up your app with -console after the uninstall, can you
confirm that the plugins aren't being used with an ss?
