Re: [tycho-dev] "lineUp" vs. "org.eclipse.equinox.p2.type.product" property when publishing product

Thanks Pascal ;)
Indeed, we already have a .p2.inf file, and use it for purposes like this one :)

I guess I wanted to first find out why we had to move away from "lineUp", was it to split products from features maybe?

My thinking was that if we needed  a *new* property we could have just added it, rather than removing "lineUp" and break backwards compatibility doing so?

No worries, we can work around this one in several ways..
Ciao, hh

Properties can be added through your friend the p2.inf :)
