Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] support for separated source bundles released
PDE is "la raison d'etre" of this support. When we decided to no longer add
the source bundles to the bundles.txt (a week or so ago), PDE could not
find the source bundles any more since the content of its target is solely
derived from the bundles.txt. Therefore PDE needed an extra place to get
the information from and this is what this file provides.
It is only after consultation with Darin and Curtis that we decided to
proceed down this path.
The other consumer of this information is update manager, since in a
co-existence mode where source bundles do not get installed in the fwk,
Update shows errors in the configuration dialog.
Note that I'm open to put the file somewhere else and give it another name,
except merging it with bundles.txt or putting it next to it.

does this affect PDE at all when targetting something installed using
p2? That is, do you still get the source in the IDE ?
