Am I missing something I tried downloading wtp-sdk-R-1.0.2-200604200208.zip
from
http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/downloads/drops/R-1.0.2 -200604200208/

This seems to contain a directory called
plugins\org.eclipse.jst.common_core.feature.source_1.0.2.v20 0604160100--08422824292272

however after installing the plugin from that zip file and looking for
updates the wtp update site says that version 1.0.2 is available and
isntalling that creates the following directory:
plugins\org.eclipse.jst.common_core.feature.source_1.0.2.v20 0604280000

which seems correct.
I think the files in
http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/downloads/drops/R-1.0.2 -200604200208/
are wrong! Can somebody please confirm/deny this?

I think the mirror I am downloading from (www.mirrorservice.org) is corrupt!
I downloaded from the main canadian website the zip file seems to contain
the correct directories.

Yes, they are "out of date", even though code is the same. The 1.0.2
release was refreshed, the code plugins are all exactly the same, but the
qualifier on some features (and, hence, code plugins) were
fixed up to allow update manager to work. The correct "drop site" for
1.0.2 is now
http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/downloads/drops/R-1.0.2 -200604280245/

I think, actually, the problem with the update site is that update manager
has a tendancy to give you only the "smallest" most recent update. If you
would have said "update again", even using the mirror, I believe it would
have given you another update, the 1.0.2.v200604280000 version.

If I can figure out a safe way to do it, some day I'll clean out those
"out dated" versions (200604200208) to help avoid the confusion. But, as a
general rule, when ever you use update, you might want to do it several
times, until it tells you "there are no updates". If you are in the mood
to experiment to confirm this, that would be great (although, obviously,
you'd have to "start over" with your prevous version, and I do not know
how easy that would be for you.)

Thanks,
