Just to be clear. I'm not proposing a composite repository. I just
thought of a small "ln -s ..." which would be part of the publish
script. It's similar to what Hudson offers. It's actually a *link* to
the last produced release.

Right. That's why there is a "version=...." attribute in the p2 fetch
factory. This uniquely identifies the version.

That's similar to the current situation. It can happen today that a
build gets removed. Thus, the bundle cannot be found anymore. Therefore,
we have to update our map files periodically to point to new builds even
thought the version of the dependency hasn't changed.

I'm not proposing to change pointing to a specific version of a bundle.
My concern is that I have to update map files because repos get removed
although the bundle version didn't change.
