[cdt-dev] Patching a CDT plugin

I am developing a commercial plugin that use Eclipse’s CDT and need to patch 3 CDT plugins to fixe some issues I already reported on Bugzilla without which the usage of the plugin will fail.


I have reviewed the thread of Joseph Henry about the distribution of custom patches: . I have also read some info posted on Eclipse Wiki about how to use fragment to patch a plugin: and as I am struggling to choose a strategy for this.


Now regarding the strategy of using a fragment to patch a plugin. It is not clear to me if the manifest of the host plugin must be modified with the attribute Eclipse-ExtensibleAPI: true. If the Host Manifest need to be modified obviously I cannot ask an end user to do this. This would be an insane way to patch a plugin.


Can anyone shade some light regarding this?
