Re: [tycho-dev] 0.18.0 release date?

there are other patches for the platform build of the kepler release pending in the meantime [1].
we do need a tycho release in time for the final kepler build for build reproducibility reasons.

things are still moving now and I don't want to do a release only to find out there's another last minute stopper for the eclipse platform build.
Currently I'm thinking it's best for the platform build to move to 0.18.0-SNAPSHOT and we'll do a tycho release from 0.18.0-SNAPSHOT as late as possible before the final kepler build.

What do you think?

I don't need a specific tycho fix, but rather I would need to have a new
version of p2 to be consumed.
More specifically I've committed a change to the publisher [1] that allows
to identify product IUs. This simple change is key to make sure that p2
remediation mechanism does not remove the current product when something
incompatible is installed (for an example of this situation see
( We currently have
a workaround in the platform build
( but generally
speaking I think the issue is important enough that we want to make sure
that we make the fix availble to the mass through tycho by the time Kepler
is released.

In addition to that, there is also the problem where Mac builds don't have
an icon and there are people working on a fix in bug

I realize that I've asked for a 0.18 build, but I'm completely happy with
a 0.17.1 that just includes a new version of p2.
