I see, thank you for the pointers -- I have to take another look at this.|
Essentially what I tried to do at some point was to create a top-level
product (custom) that includes all Buckminster features that I wanted in
that root IU. For that I had to pull everything into my target platform
(and I had other things in it) and that's where I ran into trouble.
I wish there was a way to mirror-in existing features from an external
p2 repository instead of pulling them into the target platform (and
losing all kinds of metadata in the process). Maybe b3 does that?
I ended up just requiring all those features so they do get installed in
the end, but that's not exactly the same thing.
Anyway I see your point, I'll take another look. Thanks.
