Am I using the Update Site Project correctly? I want to control the name
of the site as seen in the Update Manager, but I can't figure out how.

My artifacts.xml & content.xml files, generated by an Update Site Project,
both have a <repository> element with a really annoying name - something
like

'file:/path/to/update/site/project - metadata'

...which is what appears as the name of the site in the Update Manager.

If I change this value in the context.xml file, that's what I see in the
Update Manager.

Is there someplace in the Update Site Manifest Editor I haven't seen where
I can modify this name? Or can I put something directly in site.xml?
It's really annoying, having to hand-edit the context.xml file each time I
modify my feature and need to republish it.

You can specify a name for the repository when p2 generates its metadata.

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Metadata_Generator

See the "metadataRepositoryName", "artifactRepositoryName" properties.

You can also specify these if you are running PDE build:

http://help.eclipse.org/ganymede/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclips e.pde.doc.user/tasks/pde_p2_integration.htm

Ben
