I have completed the steps I needed to
do, so the rest is up to you. You can install the new aggregator
(and remember, you need to uninstall the old one first, if you are
going to install the new one into the same IDE).
If you do not re-clone the simrel.build repo you should just be
able to "pull" and get all the name and file changes. And you will
need to do that before you can update your contribution.
P.S. I will re-enable the Neon.VALIDATE job on Friday, after the
EPP packages have been verified (approximately noon). The
Neon.VALIDATE.gerrit job remains open for business, though.

This will require two things of those participating in the Sim.
1. You will need to get a fresh copy of the aggregator
installed into your IDE. (You will either need to "start fresh"
or uninstall the old one before installing the new one). The new
one is based on "Neon.1a" -- that is, Eclipse SDK (or Platform)
2. You will need to check out a fresh copy of
"org.eclipse.simrel.build" because the filename extensions are
changing (plus a small tweak to the files themselves) due to the
My plan is to make the new version available soon, but you
should not use it for Sim. Release until the changes have been
made to "simrel.build". I plan to make those tomorrow, Thursday,
between Noon and 1 PM (Eastern) unless there are objections to
To be explicit, I will make the required changes in both master
After all that, it will probably take me another hour or so to
change the SimRel Hudson jobs so they are using the correct
version of the aggregator.
I know the timing is not great, but there will not be a good
time between now and the end of the year.
Apologies in advance for the churn, but I do think it is an
important change that will be good in the long run.
