|[eclipse.org-architecture-council] [Bug 355418] New: p2 repository links on project download pages confuse some users|
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=355418 Product/Component: Community / Architecture Council Summary: p2 repository links on project download pages confuse some users Classification: Eclipse Foundation Product: Community Version: unspecified Platform: PC OS/Version: Linux Status: NEW Severity: normal Priority: P3 Component: Architecture Council AssignedTo: eclipse.org-architecture-council@xxxxxxxxxxx ReportedBy: wayne@xxxxxxxxxxx We receive a few emails every week about broken links to p2 repositories on various project download pages. Over the last couple of weeks, much of the activity has centered around the EGit project. Having URLs to p2 repositories manifest as clickable links is problematic for the community. I look to the Architecture Council for guidance on how to address this. Some suggestions: 1) encourage projects to include an index.html/index.php in their repos to describe what happens/what the user should do. 2) encourage projects to not make links to p2 repositories clickable. It might also be a good idea to encourage projects to include drag and dropable Eclipse Marketplace install icons.
