Hi,

We (the UFaceKit team [1]) are building and assembling all our code and
workspace setup using maven but until now we did find a repository of
Eclipse plugins we could consume.

My question you is do:
a) Is providing Eclipse-Plugins as maven-artifacts scope of these one of
these projects or do you all work on tooling
b) If you don't provide such a thing do you by chance now a public repo
which we can use to consume them? Until now we maintained our own but
if there's a public one available this would be the better way

Hello Tom,

a) The scope of IAM is limited to tooling.
b) Some eclipse bundles have been uploaded to maven central repo in the
past by Carlos Sanchez[1] who is an IAM co-lead. However, the versions
there are not up to date.

This said, we have been talking internally about initiating the job of
creating a maven repository at the Eclipse Foundation populated with
eclipse plugins. Would you be interested in helping with this? We would
need to talk to the Architecture Council, Committer Representatives, etc...

Tom,

Part of m2e goal is to provide first class support for building
eclipse/osgi bundles with maven. We call this maven based eclipse/osgi
build tool "Tycho". It won't provide existing eclipse bundles in maven
repository per se, but will allow you to use eclipse artifacts directly
from p2 repositories and local eclipse installations. You will be able
to use maven repositories to share tycho-built artifacts, however.

You can read more about Tycho on m2e wiki [1] and I can provide more
details if you have questions.
