I'm not sure if this is the proper place to ask this, and I bet that the
answer is in the book, but I'm missing something. Feel free to direct
me to a better place to ask (this is a userland question, not a dev
question, but I didn't see a -user list, and am not a big fan of forums).
The situation is: I'm successfully building a product (based on an
existing plugin/feature), replete with update site, using bucky. (Super
stoked, cool stuff, big thank you to the lightning project for putting
its headless build out with the blog entry)
Now I want a separate update site for the vanilla plugin/feature alone.
I created a feature for the site, but it's including all the plugins the
core plugin depends on, and I only want the core plugin itself.
I've tried this-- http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/645079/
--type of deal, but no dice, I still see the same plugins that are in
the product build.
Basically, I have an plugin that I've been providing as a "normal"
eclipse plugin, which I've (thanks to buckminster) successfully created
a headless product build for, which I would now like to offer the "old
way" I was doing it, an update site containing just my feature, and not
all of it's dependencies.
I feel I'm missing something obvious, which is par for the course, and
now I'll probably figure it out 5 minutes after I send this (although I
probably jinxed that by saying it aloud), but there it is.
Well, even if I just get directed to the forums-- props to the
buckminster team, it's a great project!

That was fast, right? Nice to see, honestly (from both of you). I keep
poking in on the automated build solutions from time to time, and wasn't
really feeling Tycho. Nothing against it, for sure (I'm a lover of
build systems, and goldberg machines) plus, EGit uses it fine-- but
Buckminster sounded more like what I was after.
The Eclipse landscape is always changing though (for all that it stays
the same) so I was curious as to the current state of affairs. Color me
happy with the buckminster!

Three *is* the magic number. :)
Cool. I'll reply to Wim 'cause I mostly typed it already, and do any
more questions like that in the user sphere. Better to have the info
together for future "me"s. I owe the universe a blog post about my
experience as well, I reckon.

Yay! I'll use -users now that I know there is one, probably.
Newsgroups are second only to IRC for things that I get too involved
with, but maybe I can control myself these days. Plus, as you say, it's
just an interface. All in the mind, so to speak. :)
Thank you for the information, Henrik!
