Hi,

We're migrating from Galileo to Indigo. Under Galileo the p2 repository generated contains a "binary" folder, probably because the main feature contains a product definition file? Now with Indigo the "binary" folder is missing from p2 repository.

Before digging deep I wonder if anyone has suggestions what dictates the creation of the binary folder?

Thanks!

Normally binary folder contains "root files" attached by a feature (naming is ${featureName}_root_${featureVersion}).
I my case it's an SDK feature which attaches legal files (epl-v10.html, notice.html) to the target eclipse installation. The file contribution is set up in the feature's build.properties file:
root=rootfiles

This mean zip all files contained in the /rootfiles folder and save it as zip file named my.sdk.feature_root_version. During the installation this zip file will be extracted into the target eclipse installation folder.

Regards,
Dennis.
