Re: [tycho-dev] removing "tycho" repository layout from 0.13

I doubt that removing the tycho repository layout will help much. The AbstractMavenArtifactRepository classes and derivatives widely share their p2-related implementation, and except for the MavenArtifactRepository, you won't be able to remove any of these classes.

Also, I think that we will need the implementation of Tycho repositoryies to support adding source bundles into the target platform via POM dependencies. The current implementation has a hole in that it allows to reference source bundles that come in via POM, but it doesn't ensure that they are downloaded into the Maven repository. To fix this, we would need to use the MavenRepositoryReader also used by MavenArtifactRepository.

Why don't you share your current state on github to ease the discussion?
