|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] dependencies, build and P2|
In the old days, a feature requirement was interpreted as 'non-greedy', i.e. the thing had to be present in the install in order to install your feature but there would be no attempt to install it. Unless they were met, the installation would fail immediately. For some reason that interpretation is no longer valid. The feature requirements are greedy so their role is IMO very questionable.

Would you say that the plugin dependcies are a relict from times before p2?Frankly, I'm constantly asking myself the same question. They definitely existed before p2. As far as I remember the old update manager used those dependencies. p2 should't need them as it is capable of collecting all the dependencies by using the meta-data produced from the bundle manifests. -Gunnar
