Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Auto installing touchpoint

It is something that we would like to be able to do, but it won't be
implemented before the next release.
Could you tell us more about what are the actions provided by your
touchpoint and what you are doing with the tarball?
If it is really simple and generic we could probably make it available in
the native touchpoint.

Hey gang,

The more I get into p2 the more I'm impressed by it. I have written my own
touchpoint that installs tarballs and have been able to generate the right
repositories to download and install them from the MinGW website. Very cool
and easy once you know how.

The next part of this is to figure out how to get the plug-in with my
touchpoint into people's hands. The ultimate would be for this to be
represented in the metadata somehow where I could mark this as a capability
my plug-in provides that the engine could auto install before installing
the artifacts that need it. Is this capability there, or something nifty we
could add next release.

Cheers,
Doug_______________________________________________
