Re: [equinox-dev] p2 update

It is technically possible but we don't have a UI to add such locations and
will not get to it for 3.4.
That, said, since one of the goal p2 is to get people out of the file
system, therefore I would highly suggest to d&d the plugins directly on the
p2 UI.

Is it possible to define more than one dropins folder? On Mac systems,
/Library/Eclipse/ and ~/Library/Eclipse would be good places to define
additional dropins locations for users. The normal convention would be
to capitalise the directory name, so /Library/Eclipse/Dropins and
~/Library/Eclipse/Dropins would be the normal directories for all
users and the current user respectively.
