Hi,
I'm at the end of the development cycle and I'm trying to export my
plugins to late incorporation into other Eclipse installments.

I am doing the straightforward export using the Export Wizard directly
from the Overview page of the main plugin (com.softin.rpc).

There I check also the ui (com.softin.rpc.ui).
I do not check the tests plugin.

Select Install into host. Repository:
Rationale here is I want to get a complete description of all plugins
needed, since I doubt Xtext and Xtend will be available in the
destination installation.

I do not sign the Jar archives.

Everything seems fine and the plugins are correctly installed in my
working eclipse installation.

The Repository: directory does indeed contain the two plugins and the
accompanying artifacts.jar and content.jar.

Problem is if I try to use this same directory as repository for
Help->Install New Software... I get the error "There are no items
available".

Manually dropping the plugins into the eclipse installation dir works ok
though.

What am I doing wrong?
Where should I look for guidance?
Should I prepare a "Product"?

Thanks in Advance
Mauro
