- Thread-topic: What is the relationship between Eclipse and Ganymede repositories?
I created an
internal mirror of Ganymede and then tried installing eclipse from it using the
p2 installer with the following ini file:
was successful, which surprised me. I had thought that I would need to install
from my Eclipse mirror.
I did a quick diff
on the features/plugins in my eclipse and ganymede mirrors. It seems that the
two sites share a lot of stuff in common, that ganymede is almost a superset of
Eclipse but not quite: it is missing some stuff only found in Eclipse.
1. Can anyone
explain the intent here? What is the relationship between the 2
2. Also, can
anyone tell me if the .blobstore folder found in mirrored repositories is
needed? Can it be deleted to save space?
