Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] conflicting dependencies to Orbit

Instead of added the plug-in to the "Plug-ins" tab in the feature editor
you could added it to the "Dependencies" using a range. p2 will then
fetch whatever version satisfies the dependency. In case of target
platforms this only works when the "Included required dependency" button
is checked. However, typically an SDK feature "includes" dependencies
instead of "depending" on them.

Yepp, that's painful but the only option.

There is a bug request open to provide a convenient Orbit repo URL which
always points to the latest.

Having such a "cool URL that doesn't change" would be useful for target
definitions. By specifying "0.0.0" in the target definition you can
ensure that always the latest is used during build/compile.
