Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Download manager support for pack200

The support for pack200 is in a separate bundle which is not mandatory to
the proper functioning of p2.
Therefore even if the download manager was trying to get a pack200 version
of a given artifact (by checking in the table of content of available
artifacts,no round-trip to the server), it would not succeed and fail back
to download another form of that artifact.

Another point in that area, is that even though we are currently focused on
pack200, the direction here is for the download manager to be able to pick
the most suitable format of an artifact from the available ones.

HTH,

  Subject:    [equinox-dev] [prov] Download manager support for pack200








I seem to remember that someone was working on adding to support to our
download manager to favor downloading pack200'ed artifacts over canonical
ones.
Did that ever made it into the code?

Thx
