[p2-dev] moving to using httpclient provider

Hi Folks,

As we discussed on the Monday call, we (ECF) have been completing some security work on the httpclient-based filetransfer provider and now would like to solicit help with testing this provider 'in the wild' prior to deploying with p2 M3.

On this bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=220240 I've pointed to a wiki page that has a build of the ECF httpclient-based provider zipped up into a p2 md/artifact repository. If you are able, please download the zip from the wiki page, and use the repos to install (into Eclipse presumably...but in fact you can install into other p2 environments if you wish).

After doing this, when you go to install anything using p2, you will then be using this httpclient-based provider for http and https. Obviously this isn't meant for a production environment yet, so keep that in mind (and keep another Eclipse config around).

Thanksinadvance for the help testing.
