Great work!

Some questions:

* Do we have to do anything to make sure our old configurators remain
Configurators/Connectors are listed in They should be available provided they're flagged as compatible with the proper m2e version (see below) at build time, and all required dependencies are available, at run time.
* Will old configurators automatically be available for both m2e 1.0 and 1.1?
No, they need to declare <m2e-versions>1.0,1.1</m2e-versions> 

* What happens if you have different versions of your configurator
that is only installable on either juno or indigo (because of a tight
dependency on JDT, for example)?  Is there any way to specify this?
My understanding based on previous conversations is that this isn't
possible, but I just want to make sure.
This is not currently supported. My experience is that a connector targeted for Juno doesn't appear on the catalog when run on Indigo.
I haven't tried it, and don't know if that'd work but, maybe define 2 entries in the connectors.xml (one for each target platform) would work.

* If we need to make changes to existing configurators in the catalog,
what's the best way of doing this?
For the moment still applies. Make sure you provide test projects and instructions to properly test the connectors. We need to make sure connectors in the catalog don't break anything.
We'll try to make contributing connectors easier in the future but that's still a work in progress.
