Hi all.

I made some modifications to jgit's code and I want to release them for my users. We already bundled a particular version of Eclipse with that plugin for them. The next thing to do would be to discard any updates of the plugin on their platform to be sure that they will always use my version...

I didn't find anything regarding automagic updates so I assume that updates must be triggered by users am I right? Anyway, is there a way to force that version or at least, discard updates triggered by users for that particular plugin? Something like releasing it with version 999.9.9 maybe?

THX

Hi,

there are preferences for automatic search for updates, but as you say the installation has to be triggered by the users. Releasing jgit with version 999.9.9 would presumabely work as egit only has package dependencies to jgit. Another idea that comes to my mind is that you could change the id of the jgit feature.

But I would recommend you to ask the question in the p2 forum: http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/195/

Best Regards,
Stefan
