It would clearly be better if the Platform.setup maintainer providedseparate Oomph streams for their Git branches, not just Master. Then you could just select the Oxygen stream and start working.|
Not all setup tasks support overriding, just the ones that implement the SetupTask.getOverrideToken() in a meaningful way. VariableTask and GitCloneTask are among those. The override snippet that I provided just overrides the value of the "eclipse.target.platform" variable, and that usually just impacts TargletTasks, not GitCloneTasks. But you can try to copy their GitCloneTask to your user.setup and then adjust it to your needs. I imagine there might be other tasks in their setup that would need adjustment, e.g., their API Baseline configuration (which is apparently controlled through the "eclipse.api.baseline.target.platform" variable).
Regarding your last sentence, I don't get that at all. It ends with a question mark, but I see no question. How is Oomph's own Git repo, or the lack of tags therein, related to the Platform setup?
