Re: [tycho-user] Aggregating p2 repositories

In e4 we collect all of the smaller git repo p2 output by mirroring them into an eclipse-repository

But I also like Krzysztof's idea of making a composite repo (fairly static) then the pom would only have to mirror once to generate a big repo.
FYI, in JBoss Tools, we've had a composite repo of all our "components" for a long time, and we are now questioning its utility. We used it as the entry point of many things, including aggregator, but it now seems to be more direct and efficient and less error-prone to put directly references to the right repositories (that can have properties in there URL to choose a version/stream) directly in the pom.xml.
We don't use the tycho-p2-extras-plugin:mirror mojo, but instead we have use an eclipse-repository with a dedicated category.xml that allows us to filter/organize what we put in the aggregated site.
