a) IIRC the nightlies now also include the native launcher artifacts (I|
think we are NOT shipping the feature although) so there would be no
need to reference other repos
b) Eclipse native launchers will work on Linux and Windows but they
make everything fail on OS-X, that's the reason we have turned them
c) the error you show indicates that
-Dorg.osgi.framework.bundle.parent=ext is not part of the eclipse.ini or
it is launching with a none OracleJDK who has no JavaFX
d) I've lately worked on native launchers for OS-X but they are not
done and won't be opensourced anytime soon
