Hi, this might be a bug specific to my Eclipse package, because it comes with a proprietary IBM tool (IBM Websphere Transformation Extender), but I hope you can help me anyway:

Every time I upgrade the proprietary (eclipse-based) tool, my manually added mercurial plugin disappears ...but it's not gone. I can still see the mercurial plugin in Help/About/Installation Details. Also when trying to install it (again) under Help/Install New Software it is displayed as being already installed (and disappears from the list when checking "hide items that are already installed). However I can't do any team activities on my mercurialized projects besides "create new project". And there's also no Mercurial category anymore in the list of available project types.

Workaround: removing mercurial plugin, re-installing mercurial plugin. But I'm looking for a better way to tell Eclipse that the Mercurial Plugin is still there.

Alright, I've found some missing entries in the "artifacts.xml":
    <artifact classifier='osgi.bundle' id='com.vectrace.MercurialEclipse' version='1.9.1.v201111302231'>
      <properties size='1'>
        <property name='download.size' value='1669054'/>
      </properties>
    </artifact>
    <artifact classifier='org.eclipse.update.feature' id='mercurialeclipse' version='1.9.1.v201111302231'>
      <properties size='1'>
        <property name='download.size' value='4840'/>
      </properties>
      <repositoryProperties size='1'>
        <property name='artifact.folder' value='true'/>
      </repositoryProperties>
    </artifact>

edit: Unfortunately adding these entries doesn't solve the problem. It seems not to help in any way.
