Hi,

I'm trying to implement some kind of cleanup feature, that removes old features after the installation of a newer version.

The idea is to keep only the 5 last versions of the features (on this case, the 5 last versions of the main feature, that has all the plugins and features).

Is this feature already implemented on P2?

Searching, I've found this:

ht tp://www.myeclipsede v.com/articles/p2cleanup.htm

Then, I understood that, the P2 mechanism already takes care of deleting the older plugins, but, on a update, the current plugin (that must be deleted after the installation) is still running, then, the cleanup mechanism could not perform the operation.

With the code suggested above, the unused plugins will be deleted at next program initialization.

With that, I understood that the "restore to previous configuration" DON'T uses the plugin files that are on the client's hard-drive, but, it uses the repository files.
