After I have changed most of my target platform specifications to use our local nexus I noticed that during resolution many remote p2 repositories are being loaded, at least the artifacts.

For example a simple target file could look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<?pde version="3.8"?>

<target name="My Build Target" sequenceNumber="33">
<location includeAllPlatforms="false" includeConfigurePhase="true" includeMode="slicer" includeSource="true" type="InstallableUnit">
<unit id="" version="0.0.0"/>
<repository location="" />

When resolving I can sometimes see in the progress view that eclipse updates 4.5 artifacts.jar is being loaded and other repositories that are not relevant for the resolution of the target.

I can imagine that p2 contacts all known artifact repositories when loading the necessary artifacts. In particular any local repositories should be preferred over remote repositories. But in this case it doesn't make much sense to check whether other remote repositories contain the artifacts that my fast local nexus already has.
