Re: [equinox-dev] [p2] Relocatability

This is incorrect. The resolution of
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=204041 and
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=200228 has been done to allow
for installations to be moved. However like in the past, this will only be
doable under certain constraints, one of which being to locate the bundle
pool under the eclipse folder (at least with the current design).

Also, as eclipse grows with having more dependencies on non bundle things
(and other things depends on eclipse), I think that moving an eclipse
instance will become more and more brittle, and reconciliation may just be
a safer path.
