Re: [tycho-dev] Can Tycho use an old-style site.xml update site in a target platform

you could try

this should be covered by p2.
Up to now I think that old-style site.xml update sites were still supported by p2.
Given it's been deprecated years and years ago, if it breaks now I think that chances are low anyone will fix it.

I have an eclipse-target-definition which contains

(Didn't find an issue in Bugzilla.)

PDE loads them just fine, but with Tycho I see

What looks odd to me is that Tycho tries to download the site.xml in the
first place, if old-style update sites were completely unsupported, so
maybe I am simply doing something wrong.
