How does one package an existing Eclipse Mars installation as a "User package" for Eclipse Installer by Oomph?

What I really want to preserve and be reconfigured on install are:
* Installation settings, eclipse.ini contents
* Plugins and their configuration
* Workspace projects or at least their list and VCS urls
* Settings and configuration (line numbers, formatter, content assist, templates, types to import)

Are these things possible to persist in a User package? Are there any documentation on the subject?

Thank you!

Hi Oleg,

Oomph offers Setup Tasks for all of the things you want to do. There are several ways of doing that with Oomph,
differing mostly in where you would store these Setup Tasks (e.g. as a product/package, as a project or purely in your
user.setup file). I think you should first read the Oomph Author's Guide: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring

I'm sure it would also help to look at the existing product and project models. If that doesn't answer all your
questions, it would be good to post them on the Oomph forum: http://www.eclipse.org/forums/eclipse.oomph

Cheers
/Eike
