that sounds very useful (a bit like the Nexus Unzip plugin) if you have
a zipped update site to host. However, my original question was more
like "How can I create such a zipped update site?"

My inputs are

- An eclipse-repository produced in the current build
- A composite update site pointing to several external p2 repositories

My output should be

- A packed p2 repository containing all my inputs

Hope that clarifies things.

Best wishes,
