Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] dependencies, build and P2

Yes, that all makes a lot of sense. What you're saying is that the very first thing that happens is that a P2 repos is made available that contains all of the Orbit bundles, and perhaps even some other core stuff. Everyone points to that, and maybe we even share a common rmap which includes very well constrained paths to what is in there. In a way that's kind of a -1 build, as we expect Orbit to be quite stable, given that it automatically has to go through IP process, etc..

It uses the p2 planner to create a transitive scope extending from all included features and strip of all excess bundles from the final Indigo repository. No references to Orbit will be necessary anywhere.
