Is there a -iu flag equivalent to <p2.mirror><iu></p2.mirror>? If I want
to explicitly set a list of IUs, how can I do so dynamically? I would
prefer to not have to iterate through a list of features pulled from the
contents of the zip (which I can do easily), then have to GENERATE ant
code and run that as a separate downstream task.
Simpler would be to be able to pass a list of IUs to
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.mirrorApplication, like this:
<iu id="org.foo.feature.group" />
<iu id="org.bar.feature.group" />
<iu id="org.baz.feature.group" />
(Problem is to do a mirroring operation I need to include associate
sites or p2 will complain it can't find dependencies; when I include the
associate sites but do not list the IUs I want, p2.mirror will mirror
the ENTIRE site. So, if I want to merge two update site zips and list
galileo site as an assoc site to resolve deps, I end up with a mirror of
all three sites, not just the two zips.)
Or, is there a way to pass a collection, list, array, or fileset to
Apologies if this is a dumb question, but the help.eclipse.org docs fail
to mention how to tell the mirrorApplication which IU(s) to mirror.

No. Neither the metadata generator nor the publisher supports the
generation of metadata from packed jar. This would require the
generation process to unpack the jar and process them.

If the original update site (the one for which you have the pack'ed
jars) already contains metadata, reuse the initial repository as a
starting point to generate the new metadata (see -append flag).

The mirroring tool would do that:
