Re: [eclipse-dev] 2.0.1 builds

Darn, it's for me ;-)
we can do

1) change all the version of all the features to 2.0.1, when your plugin changes, change the plugin.xml to 2.0.1, change the version of you rplugin in your feature.xml to 2.0.1.
All the features will be installed, only 2.0.1 plugin will be installed.

2) follow Peter's recommendation. If your plugin change, change the version in plugin.xml, change the version of your plugin in your feature.xml, change the version of feature.xml, [change the version of this feature in feature.xml that requires this feature, change the version of the feature.xml that requires this feature (recursively to the top)]
only new features and new plugins will be installed

Are you using PDE feature builder ? Should be easy to do that no ?

Hi Peter,

Good point.  I don't think this would result in a complete refresh since I believe the underlying plugin versions change.

I thought that the 2.0.1 release should contain all 2.0.1 features, but after reading your post I am not so sure.

I would welcome input from the update team or anybody else for that matter on how to proceed.

My intent is that all features become 2.0.1 but plugin versions are only revised as required.

     What is the rational for  changing the feature.xml's in advance. When
the plugin owners change the feature.xml  for the first time shouldn't that
be the time the features get upgraded to 2.0.1? Otherwise 2.0.1 will be a
complete refresh of the features when perhaps some of the underlying
plugins haven't changed?

The reason I ask is I am wondering if there was something I missed about
how updates work? Since we tend to follow eclipses lead in this area.

Hello folks,

I have edited all the *-feature and primary plugin projects in the R2_0_1
branch in preparation for starting 2.0.1 builds.  In the feature.xml files
I have only changed the feature versions from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1.  I have not
changed any of the plugin versions.  These are all primarily 2.0.0

Your plugin versions (in the plugin.xml files) should only change to 2.0.1
IF you actually have plugin changes to contribute to 2.0.1.  If you do
change a plugin version for the 2.0.1 builds you must remember to make the
corresponding change to the appropriate feature.xml files in the
appropriate features.

If you do not feel comfortable making these changes, or do not have commit
rights to make them please send mail to the platform-releng-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx
and we will make the change for you.  Please let us know of impending
changes well before (24 hours) schedule 2.0.1 builds.

Please do not change your plugin versions in the HEAD (2.1) stream at this

2.0.1 builds should start next week.  I will send out email when it
