Re: [eclipse.org-planning-council] Kepler SR2 Respin

The bug is severe as the build refuses to launch after the install. While it aborted the install in older versions, 4.3.2 RC4 now allows to install and afterwards one can no longer launch. I verified that the fix applied to 4.3.2 RC4 indeed works.

+1 to respin.

The p2, Equinox and Eclipse Platform team are currently in the process of fixing a serious issue in p2 [1,2]. While the issue has existed for a while, it was masked by another bug (which has been fixed). This bug is critical because it can leave users in a completely broken state (plugins may appear to be installed, but won't actually function). In the worse case, Eclipse install may no longer start after a successful provisioning operation.

I would like to request a respin of Kepler SR2 (including the repository and EPP Packages). We are still in the process of rebuilding the Eclipse Platform, but I think we should start the discussion / vote here too.
