Re: [tycho-user] Source feature generation for "dependency" features

Hi Gunnar,

A quick note in case it can help: Instead of a feature, you can directly put bundles directly in the eclipse-repository, using the <bundle...> tag. It avoids extra-artifacts and extra-steps.
Also, I generally think that shipping sources of 3rd-party stuff in your repository is not a very helpful thing, as:
* End-users don't care about sources
* Embedder who build other plugins on top of yours have a target definition which contains the necessary bundles and source bundles and "includeSources=true" for usage in PDE and build. Source bundles for your 3rd party stuff can come from external repositories
* Contributors can use a Target platform shipped by the project, containing the set of dependencies and setting "includeSources=true" so they see source in their IDE.
