Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] RAP Tools disabled because of conflicts with Eclipse Platform 4.20 M1 contribution

Unfortunately the problem Ed brought up where downstream projects would have to reproduce what the Platform does for its Jetty problems is already here. WTP needs more Jetty bundles than the Platform provides, and if the Platform is using 10.0.1, it would be foolish for me to ship using anything else, even 10.0.2.

I don't know who was taking care of, but there needs to be something similar for 10.x, and likely 11.x, to serve as a canonical p2 repository for all of it. Pulling jars directly from Maven seems well suited to products, RCP apps, and configurations that aren't expected to be built upon, but for the Platform to use this approach only complicates matters. The Platform is an unavoidable middleman in this case.
