[eclipse.org-planning-council] RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Feedback on the europa update site
My memory might fool me, but I think that my experience has
shown me so far, that
"Select Required" does NOT work for features
which are available on the site but not
listed on site.xml . After all, UM would not be able to
display a selection for such
features, would it? And, how would it know that these
features exist after all? I don't
think it scans the remote directory, I even don't think it
would be capable of doing that
through the http: protocol.
I have no time to verify this again now, but I'd recommend
Bjorn to wait with changes
to the build system until someone has verified what "Select

confirm that this all works as described, expected, desired before going off
and doing Europa-wide changes.

Feedback on the europa update site|
Hmm, I learn something new every day... Ok, I will modify the Europa
build tool not to require that all features be listed in site.xml. I will send
email to the list after I have done that so that any project who wishes to
modify their portion of the site.xml may do so. Please do not modify the
Europa site.xml until after I have fixed the Europa build tool.

The site.xml is used to show users what is available for them to select
and download. Depending on the workflow the features that are used by
other projects could be put on the Europa site but not in the site.xml.
People should then be able to tell update manager to get the required
features as well. Of course, there may well be a reality issue blocking
