Pre-populating p2 with multiple update sites (was Re: [] RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Heresy mark II (summaries and replies))

Bjorn, testing Ganymede assumptions using Europa is like turning on the radio to watch TV. :P

However, your assumption is partly correct for Eclipse 3.4 w/ p2 as well.

1. Install Eclipse I20080429-0100
2. Unpack EMF 2.4 into dropins/
3. Start Eclipse
4. Help > Software Updates... > Available Software > EMF update site is already listed. (It's not *NAMED* like it used to be in Eclipse 3.3, but /modeling/emf/updates/ should be pretty obvious even to the noobiest of users.)

But will p2 resolve cross-site dependencies like Europa did? Not exactly.

We could very easily pre-populate with all the project's update sites, n'est pas? And that would provide a natural additional level of classification of the features...
I'm sure we could prepopulate more then one site.
