<additionalFileSets> DefaultFileSet[] - Additional files to be included in the bundle jar. This can be used when bin.includes in build.properties is not flexible enough , e.g. for generated files. If conflicting, additional files win over bin.includes
Example:
<additionalFileSets>
 <fileSet>
  <directory>${project.build.directory}/mytool-gen/</directory>
  <includes>
   <include>**/*</include>
  </includes>
 </fileSet>

<archive> MavenArchiveConfiguration - The maven archiver to use. One of the archiver properties is the addMavenDescriptor flag, which indicates whether the generated archive will contain the pom.xml and pom.properties file. If no archive configuration is specified, the default value is true. If the maven descriptor should not be added to the artifact, use the following configuration:
<plugin>
  <groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
  <artifactId>tycho-packaging-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>${tycho-version}</version>
  <configuration>
    <archive>
      <addMavenDescriptor>false</addMavenDescriptor>
    </archive>
  </configuration>
</plugin>

<qualifier> String - Build qualifier. Recommended way to set this parameter is using build-qualifier goal.
User property is: buildQualifier.
<sourceReferences> SourceReferences - Whether to generate an Eclipse-SourceReferences MANIFEST header. When using this parameter, property ${tycho.scmUrl} must be set and be a valid maven SCM URL. Example configuration:
        <sourceReferences>
          <generate>true</generate>
        </sourceReferences>
Note that a SourceReferencesProvider component must be registered for the SCM type being used. You may also override the generated value by configuring:
        <sourceReferences>
          <generate>true</generate>
          <customValue>scm:myscm:customSourceReferenceValue</customValue>
        </sourceReferences>

<strictBinIncludes> boolean - If set to true (the default), missing build.properties bin.includes will cause build failure. If set to false, missing build.properties bin.includes will be reported as warnings but the build will not fail.
Default value is: true.
<useDefaultExcludes> boolean - (no description)
