My gut is telling me that this is likely an issue with Update Manager,
but I figure I'd start here since PDE generates the suffix. This may be
related to bug# 89428.

We use Eclipse 3.3 to build our product using PDE Headless Build. One of
our features had the following name:

com.ibm.bbp.desktop.feature_1.1.0.v200810150440-43-_kE77cA7A Q7MM7

After a fix cycle, it's name is now:

com.ibm.bbp.desktop.feature_1.1.1.v200812032300-430_kE77cAE7 IEI77

The difference worth noting is the character combination of "-_" in the
first name. The new name has "0_" in its place.

The new feature version is not handled well by Update Manager. It looks
for "com.ibm.bbp.desktop.feature_1.1.1.v200812032300-430" in
the local site, instead of "com.ibm.bbp.desktop.feature". Hacking a bit,
we manually updated the feature's version to
com.ibm.bbp.desktop.feature_1.1.1.v200812032300-43-_kE77cAE7 IEI77
(replacing the 0 with a hyphen before the underscore) and that worked.
Seems like something in update code likes to see a hyphen before the
underscore character in the qualifier.

Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks,

Alej.
