Hi all,

I see Tycho has had supports for pack200 stuff for awhile.
I'd like to use it in order to reduce the time to fetch artifacts from a
p2 repository built with Tycho.

I had a look at integration tests and there are a few things I'd like to
understand before just copy-pasting stuff.
* Is there any documentation already available?

No, there is no documentation beyond the ITs. It's supposed to be
self-evident but feel free to capture this explanation in eclipse wiki
if you find it useful ;-)

From an end-user POV, I don't find it "self-evident".
I'm tryng ot set it up at: . Your corrections and improvements to it are welcome.

* Do this plugin apply to an eclipse-repository directly ? If yes, it
the tycho-p2-plugin:p2-metadata necessary ?

No, tycho pack200 support operates on individual bundles, not on repository.
Ok, so how does it happen that the pack200 jars go into repository? Is it "magically" performed by the eclipse-repository packaging? Ie, eclipse-repository consumes and exposes pack200'd artifacts when it find them?
