Re: [orbit-dev] Orbit contribute directly to simrel

Hello folks,

We have a number of projects who are contributing old orbit content to simrel. In fact Mylyn's current contribution to simrel of com.sun.xml.bind 2.2.0 appears to be an old one and now causes simrel to be broken. See

My proposed fix for this is that Orbit starts enforcing that the current version of bundles are the ones that make it into simrel. As such I have done that with which I hope will solve the problem.

This same solution will also let me fully remove birt from simrel as at the moment WTP depends on, but the only current contribution to simrel of that bundle is BIRT and that bundle is old with a signature. See

Please let me know if you have any concerns about this. Or even better a +1 if you think this is a good idea.

I like the idea. Only question is how would it enforce that only the latest bundle from Orbit is used?

However, until Orbit also stops publishing jars with different signatures but same qualifier we may find it difficult to get rid of all the old/bad signatures in simrel as I don't think the tools today can enforce which p2 repo an identically versioned bundle comes from. I hope this can be improved with a combination of moving all Orbit to git and the great work being done to move Simrel to tycho.
