Yes, it looks like that. And if you delete the installer, your
installation will be broken and cannot be updated.

The installer found in HEAD is not creating the features directory. That
is a result of setting IProfile.PROP_INSTALL_FEATURES of the profile to
"true". For our installer I've set this property
inInstallUpdateProductOperation.createProfile(). I have no idea if the
installer should install features or not.

the p2 team please comment on this thread?
