[equinox-dev] P2 artifact repositories and caching

In Buckminster, we need a global artifact cache for downloaded things. What I envision is a cache that can use different strategies to decide whether or not the local content is up-to-date. One such strategy could be to compare with a remote digest of some sort (md5 for instance). Another could be to verify the consistency of a local compressed archive and be satisfied with the exact same size (not 100% safe of course, but in some cases its sufficient).

I found the BlobStore in p2 and that will help some. I was under the impression that a "download manager" was under development that would address caching issues like the ones I mention. Are there more things under development that are not covered by the current team project set?
