Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] p2 repositories ... we can do better

Sorry, a little late to this game, but another small thing.  While David mentioned the use of packed jars, please keep the unpacked jars around too.  We have found that the Java 7 pack/un-packer has changed (compared to previous versions), and we are having trouble processing pack.gz files on Java 7 Runtimes.  If the un-packed jars are still around, p2 can fall back to these.

please don't let my 'silly' comment derail the conversation
was perhaps a careless word I threw out

anything that improves peoples experience with p2 would be a good
thing because right now for me it is still this black box that is a
bit hit or miss in terms of what is in it, what comes out of it, and
how its all organized

I am sure people can say the same about maven central, but 5 minutes,
a web browser and a bit of investigative spirit and clicking around
can sort that out...

by about the 5th jar file I have cracked open and sorting through
MANIFEST.MF files...that is where the eye glazing comes in from my
previous statement :)

so by all means please continue improving p2 repositories!  and if the
eclipse-signing-maven-plugin is supposed to be doing anything from
this conversation please bring that to my attention directly!
