Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Luna RC1 staging repo is complete.

Hi Stephan,

For historical/releng reasons, part of ECF (core and filetransfer) could not be directly updated in Eclipse. Prior to Luna, it was necessary to patch Eclipse in order update these bundles.

Over the past year, this problem has been dealt with through changes to the feature structure [1], and so this patch is not needed for Luna.

ECF would like to continue supporting Kepler, however, and so we need to continue distributing the patch so that Kepler users can install ECF from the Luna repo.

I agree the wording awkward. If people have suggestions for rewording that would be clearer (i.e. use for Kepler, not for Luna), then suggestions would be appreciated.

I just stumbled upon a feature that doesn't seem to belong here:

Not sure if
(a) needed for some technical reasons and hence the nice explanation
    in the feature name "please don't use me", or
(b) simply forgotten from former times?, or
(c) ... (your explanation here) ...

just looks funny ...
