Could anyone tell me how to build the egit update site locally using the tycho build in place? I'm hacking around egit and would like to easily install my own flavor, but I'm not a big user of maven/tycho...
Well I must not look at the right place then because the build as explained in the developer guide does not produce on my linux 64 bit machine a new set of plugins/features inside egit/org.eclipse.egit.repository/target/repository, and it does say build successful. Am I looking at the right place? Is there a command to specifically trigger the build of the update site?
I often use -P skip-ui-tests because they often fail and take forever, but that should not matter right?
org.eclipse.egit.repository/target/repository is the right place too look at. -P skip-ui-tests should not matter. Could you build only the org.eclipse.egit.repository project and check in the maven log what's happening?
I solved the problem by switching to the 4.2 target within eclipse (running 3.7.2 here), which triggered the downloading of the necessary plugins/features for that target. Then the p2 build was possible because it required the import feature which only builds with 4.2 target.
So I guess the maven build does not automate the target downloading.
Also what's the point of choosing a target for building? I suppose building with the 4.2 target still produces binaries usable in 3.7 environments. So I guess the target is only really useful for the test suite, right?
