Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] folders in artifact repository

Hi Pascal,

I'm working on this problem.
The specific bug associated with this work is here --
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=179317

In terms of timeline I'm looking to do this tomorrow.
I'm not looking at doing anything fancy like dynamically serving up a zip
from the folders content for remote consumption.
On the other hand I do think we should permit sharing and/or possibly
mirroring with other local repos. Specifically I want to be able to share
folder content that is tracked by the directory watcher to be me made
available to the bundlepool either by reference or by makeing a copy.

I'm still trying things out however the approach I'm investigating is to
use properties on the ArtifactDescriptor to allow special treatment.
For the bundlepool example we'd still unzip the zipped artifact to the root
of the bundle pool, but then use IArtifactRepository.addDescriptor(...) to
make the artifact repo aware of it.

So far so good, however I still need to sort out how to get the mapping to
work so that we can use IFileArtifactRepository.getArtifactFile(...)
