My version of the "releng" feature only has the feature I want in the
site, but that feature has the plugin, which is the same plugin I used
for the product.

Maybe I should have a different plugin for the product?  That would make
pretty good sense as to what I'm seeing.  This is the first time I've
messed with products in a few years, and I just tacked it onto the
existing plugin.

I'll try moving the product to a plugin just for the product, and see if
the generated site for the then isolated feature works.  That's probably
the way god intended it anyhow.

>From yet another plugin project (separate project), which had a product
associated with it from years ago, I noticed that when I ran the
buckminster build against it that the product def was picked up
automatically (it had been ignored the way I'd been building/deploying
the plugin before, via eclipse with an update site the old fashioned way).

So bucky is actually being true-er to the build than what I was doing
before (the product def *is* in the plugin, after all).

This seems a plausible scenario.  I'll do some more experimenting and
see what I get.  If I cannot figure it out I'll do a new post to the
user group.

That is an excellent idea!

Thank you Wim!
