Hi,

When I add another ssh key to the eclipse ssh keys in the installer, I
thought that key would also be available to the installed IDE. However
it seems that the key settings are not copied into the IDE, since my
gerrit clone fails and the preferences in the installed IDE don't show
the key that I had set in the installer. Any workaround other than
setting the key again in the installed IDE and re-launching the tasks
manually?

Felix,

There were two related problems recently fixed.

Firstly the settings weren't persisted in the installer itself:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=497056

Now the configuration folder is also used as the instance location so
all instance-scoped preferences and dialog settings are saved.

Secondly the preferences from the installer were not transferred to the
workspace:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=497057

Now the preferences file is copied to the workspace, if that preference
a file isn't already present present there, which of course it won't be
for a new workspace so definitely will be copied over in that case.

We've not done any integration builds or maintenance builds, so only the
recent Hudson builds are available with this fix.

I suppose you could use the preference recorder to record these things
so they are applied to all workspaces of all installation. But maybe you
don't want that...

Each morning around 0:40 server time a nightly build becomes available. Unfortunately the wiki is currently down, but
IIRC. it describes how to consume the nightly builds: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Installer

I see. I'll just workaround (it's just for a demo) by using the default
id_rsa key(name).
