p2 will garbage collect artifacts when they are no longer referenced. When you revert, p2 essentially re-installs the previously-recorded artifacts; since they were GC'd from your installation, p2 has to find them from somewhere. Since it couldn't, it errored out.|
The build tools (PDE/Build, Tycho, and probably Buckminster) create new repositories to host the results of the build. If you want to preserve older artifacts, you need to maintain a copy of the previous build results, and copy in the new build results using something like the p2.mirror task.
You could also try disabling the p2 GC using the gcOnStartup property.
Hope that helps.
