Re: [cbi-dev] cbi-dev Digest, Vol 3, Issue 4

Thanks for pointing this out, Wayne. I had expected so. 

Concerning the technical requirements, it is as Igor wrote: The p2 repositories and tycho will help us, but only for plugin builds. A large part of our build process is a "classical" Maven/Ivy build that requires single dependencies to be described in a POM and available from a Maven repository. An example for this would be : The approved library would need to be published into the Nexus repository with proper POM file. I notice a similar topic was already discussed: . However we did not find the content mentioned there, yet. 

So, to summarize, we will create bugs against Dash/Maven for the inclusion of all dependencies from Orbit that we currently have approved CQs for. Given the large number of dependencies I'd rather create one "bulk ticket" for the list of currently approved CQs and then single bugs for later updates. 

What is less clear to me is how to proceed with approved dependencies that currently are NOT in Orbit. This question comes in two flavors: 

1)  Libraries that were approved for reuse as is, be it via a PB or regular CQ (examples would be or ). In this case I would see two options:

- either they could be provided in to the repository "central" on (I assume this is intended for approved dependencies that are available on maven central, but as discussed within eclipse needs to be consumed via ) Would this be triggered via a bug report against das/maven, too ? 
- or add these to orbit and proceed as described above. 

2) Libraries that are approved for reuse with modifications (subset). An example would be . In this case I am not entirely sure what the process and distribution of responsibilities would be to get the modified binaries made available via Would the standard process be via an Orbit contribution or are there other ways to address this? 

Best Regards

Eclipse project builds must resolve third-party dependencies through sources. Sorry, but obtaining dependencies for distributable Eclipse content from Maven central is a no-no. is still a work-in-progress. If improvements are needed, please open bugs against Dash/Maven.

I'm hopeful that our new release engineer will be able to spend some cycles helping the Dash committers make do what we need it to do.
