Re: [eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - Feb 25, 2009

Other discussion item

I'd like to change the current multitude of platform specific JDT, CVS, PDE and RCP zips that are currently available on the download page to a single p2 repo for each feature.  This will reduce the amount of disk space each build consumes, reduce the time the build takes and encourage consuming teams to start using p2 repos instead of zips.
