[tycho-user] Qualifier replaced by Timestamp that lies in the future

Hi all,


we’re using Tycho 0.22 to build our Eclipse SDK for Eclipse Scout and encounter odd behaviour in our nightly builds.

After lots of debugging, we would be grateful if anyone has any insights…



We use the tycho-packaging-plugin to replace the qualifier part with the build timestamp, for example: 6.0.0.qualifier ->

Locally, this builds just fine and the build-qualifier outputs a timestamp that makes sense.

Building this however on the Eclipse Foundation infrastructure, the timestamp used to replace the qualifier lies in the future!


This is the output from a build that finished at 2016-05-02 09:54:54 -04:00 (corrected for interleaved output by parallel build):

What we checked:

·         The time of the machine is set properly (UTC-4, but otherwise not significant drift).
We can see this as other “plain maven” build artifacts have the expected timestamp.

·         Performing the build without parallel maven build (no “-T” option) does not change it


We do not have remote debug access the machine. If anyone is interested, we can provide the effective POM for this part of the build.


Thanks in advance for any insights,
