P2 could help and make the generator/director a simple bridge calling
the publisher behind the scenes,
that way everybody, willingly or not, would call the director ;) If this
bridge were verbose enough we could then see the right director calls
and replace our calls to avoid the (useless) bridging...
For RCPs I'm hoping we get a single IU that references all other IUs so
that we can continue to install as easily as before... (re Ians
statement regarding this..)

You should transition to the publisher (it will be the tool moving
forward, and we could use the help with bug reports, etc...). I like
the question "Are there docs I'm missing"? I think the question should
be "Are the docs missing" and the answer is yes. Docs are now on my
todo list. :)
You should be able to run the features and bundle publisher and point to
a director (-source) containing /features and /plugins. When you use the
director to install you use -installIU (not -root). I don't think we
create a single IU that holds all the IUs.

In 3.4.x, we in Fedora used the EclipseGenerator app to generate
metadata and then used the director app to install it.
In 3.5, should we use FeaturesAndBundlesPublisher?
I tried using the publisher with the director it and although it
generates metadata seemingly fine, the director fails when given
same "-root". What am I doing wrong? Is there a publisher
to the director app? Are there docs I'm missing?
