Your observation is correct. Some discussion on that topic is happening in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=224145

[equinox-dev] [prov] Eclipse 3.3 extension locations




With Eclipse 3.3 it was possible to add extension locations from Help >
Software Updates > Manage Configuration >
Add an Extension Location.
While it is possible to add such an extension location from the new UI
with "add Site" it is of course something different because:
- only plugins with with an associated feature are realized
- and they have to be explicitly installed

It seems that there is no correspondent functionality within 3.4. for
this existing/"legacy" concept, although the dropins folder provide a
similar functionality.

Is this observation correct?
