Re: [p2-dev] Buckminster builds completely broke when moving from M6 to RC1

Hi Thomas,

Sorry for the late breakage. This work was underway since the end of 2010 and only came to fruition right around EclipseCon. After having met with Tobias at EC, we decided to merge the code back into HEAD but the time to become comfortable with the changes, the time to do the merge (the work was done in the incubator) and toy around with the build, it was deemed too late to add it to M6 which explains why it has been released in M7.
Rest assure that the rules have not changed, but I definitely got better at convincing others :p

Note that even though the packages were in the API namespace, they were marked internal in the manifest. I know this is not very consistent with the rest of p2, but this was an experiment that we had decided to try a couple years back (when the publisher got introduced) to minimize the impact when an API is actually released in its final form (ppl would not have to rename their packages).

The new bundle is called org.eclipse.equinox.p2.publisher.eclipse and you will want to use the recent RC1 as a couple classes got changed this week.
