When you do your own distribution, please test if "update manager" still works properly before rolling it out.
You can do this by testing the scenarios "install another plugin" or "check for eclipse updates".
[If you want to prevent a customer doing any additional install or update, please disable the install/update feature completely and document properly why and that you did this.]
Customers using several such vendor-specific "eclipse distributions" (for embedded development) wanted to add (install) our plugin. They came to us with an "unresolved dependencies" error, but we found out that in all cases the problem was not with our plugin, with an invalid platform.xml file. Eclipse has "package tools" to help you make your own distribution and keep track of the used plugins, so please use them. Thanks!
