Hi all,

currently I am attempting to build a feature containing only locale
fragments using Bucky using a Jenkins job.

The error I am getting is:

Error: file /, line 6:
Host bundle 'org.example.helloworld' cannot be resolved

My questions about this:

1. My current approach for that is having all locale fragments in a separate
feature, following the separation of concerns principle (first some jobs
build component features, then locales are built similarly before finally
the product builds use all created p2 repositories). If I remember correctly
fragments are not own bundles, but are just merged into their host bundle
during the build. Is it possible at all to build fragments in a separate
"locales" feature?

2. If a separate feature is possible: how should the host plug-ins be
provided? First I tried to provide the binary plug-ins as p2 repositories
created in other Jenkins jobs (the p2 repositories do not contain source
bundles). Then I tried referencing directories containing the sources as a
local reader in the rmap file. But the error shown above persists.

3. If a separate feature is possible: would this include all the host
bundles, too? My guess would be no because the feature just _depends_ on
these, it does not include them. If all host bundles would be included then
I could also remove the separate job and add building the fragments to the
job which is repsonsible for the actual product builds.

4. If a separate feature is not possible: what is best practice here? Must
all locale fragments become part of the corresponding component feature
builds/jobs creating the p2 repositories mentioned in question 2?

Thanks for your help,
