Bot MJT and EGIT are failing to aggregate due to failing
to find packed artifacts. For example,
org.eclipse.core.runtime.CoreException: Unable to
mirror artifact osgi.bundle,org.eclipse.egit.core,220.127.116.11106011211-rc3
from repository http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-1.0:
No location for packed: osgi.bundle,org.eclipse.egit.core,18.104.22.168106011211-rc3.
I'm not sure if these teams forgot something ... or
some build utility changed something ... but, thought it worth reminding
everyone that the aggregator has stricter criteria for "correctness"
than simply "installing with p2". I think this is a case of that.
If p2 can not find a packed artifacts, in continues merrily on trying the
jar instead. The b3 aggregator, though, assumes that if your content metadata
says there is a packed artifact there, then it is an error if there is
no packed artifact there. After the fact, some cases like this can be fixed
by running p2.process.artifacts on the repo. Then longer term, figure out
why the packed artifacts are not being created?
Also, I'm going to try again without soa-sca contribution
... I know they have (or, are) trying to fix things ... but, since has
failed several times, I'll try without.
