Is there a concrete
bug report that describes the concrete bug that needs to be fixed?

Photon M7 not ready Sent
Dear planning council
As you may have seen on cross-project
and epp-dev, M7 is still not ready. An issue about checksums in aggregated
p2 repo has been discovered yesterday. A couple of tentative fixes have
been made, unsuccessfully (some of which have been delayed by other issues:
contributions disappearing, CBI JIPP getting down...).
I'm still investigating, but I guess
we want a plan B.
My tests on a Photon M6 don't raise any
issue, despite the checksum issue. If we are good, we could ask EPP to
use this repo to build and make this repo available. It will buy us some
time by RC1 staging completion (next Wed.) in order to fix the issue.
Other solution. The issue appears only
for project using very latest p2 version to build (either directly or from
Tycho 1.2.0-SNAPSHOT) being Eclipse projecst (platform, pde, jdt...) and
objectteams. Maybe we could reach out to them asking to build with a version
of p2 which does not break the simrel build. It's less than ideal, but
not unreasonable IMO.
Finally, I can also "manually"
edit the p2 artifacts files to fix the checksum. It's a bit less reasonable
that previous solution.
