Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] More on greedy install attribute ...

Some bundles from Acceleo (org.eclipse.acceleo.*) appear in this list. For example :

  1. org.eclipse.core.filesystem
  2. Number of IUs using optional, but greedy for this case: 2

    1. org.eclipse.acceleo.common

Acceleo is developped as an Eclipse plugin, yet it is also meant to be useable in a standalone environment. When installed in Eclipse, we depend on org.eclipse.core.* bundles to provide additional functionality and integration. However, none of these dependencies are mandatory when using it as a standalone generation tool. So yes, we are indeed greedy (but in fact, it should be quite difficult to _not_ have o.e.c.filesystem installed before us right? org.eclipse.core.runtime and org.eclipse.core.resources should probably be ignored too by this report), _and_ optional since the dependency is not really needed in other environments.

I believe that these cases should be exceptions to the "greedy" report. How could we document/track these? Or is my understanding wrong here?

No, you're not wrong. This is exactly the kind of scenario that the greedy attribute was supposed to cover.
