[tycho-dev] How does tycho materialize an eclipse-repository

Hi all,

I am trying to work on a way to include directly bundles in an update-site, without having to use features for indirections.
I think I succeeded to implement some necessary changes in Tycho to be able to categorize directly bundles into categories, as I requested here: . However, I am still not sure how that could apply to Tycho.
AFAI Understand, Tycho does 2 things with an eclipse-repository: first it gathers all features (and included features and plugins) defined in the repo; and then it applies a categoryPublisher on it. Am I right?
So I have a question on this first step: can you please tell me whether Tycho has its own mechanism for creating the repository contents, or if it relies on p2? In both case, a link to the piece of code responsible of gathering the features/ and plugins/ content from a category.xml is very welcome.
