[equinox-dev] [prov] ECF discovery of artifact and metadata repos

In prep for EclipseCon, the ECF team would like to create a demo that discovers p2 artifact and metadata repos. ECF has a discovery API [1], now implemented with both zeroconf/bonjour and SLP providers [2]. We've recently done an example that discovers update sites on lan [3].

So, my main question is: for discovering artifact and metadata repos, what is the necessary meta-meta-data? (data about location/access to repos). Is it simply an URL, or is there more to it? Pointers into p2 code desired...as I need to do that anyway.
