synthesize the pom.xml from the
p2-metadata [...]'s not that funny.
MIHO - creating a p2-repo from maven is a lot easier than the other way.
I agree with that, and I think it's a pity actually because MANIFEST-first approach has a lot of benefits and seems more simple and powerful.
So I'm wondering, do you think the story of generating a plain Maven artifact from an eclipse-plugin artifact is something that can be improved with a nice solution in Tycho somehow?
