[p2-dev] p2 test server - request for input

in our last p2 call, we discussed the need to have "repositories broken in various ways" set up for testing purposes. I promised to look into this, and possibly set something up at Cloudsmith. I thought about this a bit, and think it is much better to run a local test server (easy to modify when you need something, can be used on an airplane, and is easy to debug).

If you have ideas, or requirements, please express them in  https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=273094

I have started implementation already, and have a basic equinox http server running with an "error echo"-service running. It proved to be immediately useful, as I found that some to error reporting logic did not quite do what was expected. (Should have written this service long ago).

My idea is that there should be one testserver project, where all the various "bad repositories" are defined, and an accompanying test suite (requiring the server to be started, but otherwise fully automated).
