Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Release train broken for MacOS?

Thank you for the infos. I've found the code that causes my trouble. It's in DirectorApplication.initializeProfile():

      if (org.eclipse.osgi.service.environment.Constants.OS_MACOSX.equals(os) && destination.getName().endsWith(".app"))
        env += ',' + org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core.spi.Constants.MACOSX_BUNDLED + "=true"; //$NON-NLS-1$

That implies (and I've tested) that the problem goes away if the destination does *not* end with ".app". I'm not a Mac user myself and I have no clue what the consequences are when I leave the ".app" out. Does it impact the way the application is / can be started? Pascal told me that the cool Mac users install into *.app folders because that would flatten out the nested folder somehow, which is true in my cross-platform Hudson build for an RCP product. But I found that the Eclipse SDK always appears with a nested folder, whether the root folder ends with ".app" or not.

Fails: director -repository ""; -installIU org.eclipse.sdk.ide -profileProperties "org.eclipse.update.install.features=true" -p2.os macosx cocoa -p2.arch x86_64 -destination **

Works: director -repository ""; -installIU org.eclipse.sdk.ide -profileProperties "org.eclipse.update.install.features=true" -p2.os macosx cocoa -p2.arch x86_64 -destination *Eclipse*

It's hard to speak for "everyone", but I am not. Contributions welcome.

To summarize my understanding of the issue (which is easily the wrong understanding) is that p2 introduced this new IU
filter (macosx-bundled) that should be "transparent" to everyone; that we (in Platform, and Sim. Release repo) do not
want this "phantom IU filter"; we have no plans to support or provide it; and most important, I do not know how to "get
rid if it". (There's some vague suggestion that "every time a repo is mirrored it has to be filtered out" ... but I
don't really know what that means or why we should have to if "transparent" to everyone.)

You don't say ... are you trying to make use of the "macosx-bundled" filter? Or the legacy layout? If the former, I
think you can't ... if the latter, you may be able to refine your filter statement.

Again, contributions welcome, and bug 407588 is likely best place to discuss the issues.
