[eclipse-dev] plugin link files with unc mapping part 2

Greetings I have found the following information: <>

"The property path is a comma-separated list of optionally annotated install paths. The property value install-path is a full file path to the installation directory root, specified in local OS format. The optional annotation r or rw indicates whether Eclipse update support should allow the specified location to be used for updates. Default is to allow updates (w)."

Am I wrong in assuming that this is a bug? unc is a local OS format but eclipse does not seem to handle it. Any plans to fix this in future releases?





With eclipse 2.0 are there any known issues if in the plugin link files there is a unc mapped drive and not a c: mapped drive?

Specifically with Websphere Application Developer 5.0 in the eclipse/links directory there are files that link to specific plugins.  I am using Merant PVCS Version Manager  and it is linked to a unc mapped network drive for the plugin information.  

Does eclipse need to have a c: mapped drive and not unc mapping for those to work?
