[p2-dev] EPP and the p2 installer

Hi *,

we (EPP) are using the p2 installer in the upcoming wizard that creates 
dynamic download configurations. Maybe you've read the announcements many 
weeks ago or in this blog entry  
http://rapblog.innoopract.com/2008/09/new-eclipse-download-wizard-and-rap.html 
last week. Now we have deployed the wizard for "Friends of Eclipse" on

  http://build.eclipse.org/eppwizard/go

Maybe we have to change the URL in the future, but for now the RAP/p2 
application is available there.

* We are using the last released version (June) of the p2 installer. - Is 
there an improved version somewhere available that we should use instead? Are 
there any plans for future releases etc.? I couldn't find that information.

* Are there any plans to enhance the installer? E.g. proxy support, a wizard 
like approach where you have to agree to some licenses etc.? Something that 
enables us to tweak the layout?

* In most cases it works perfectly!! But sometimes the p2 installer hangs 
without telling us (or the logfile) what the reason is. Maybe this has to do 
with the heavy network load during the last few days, but in any case: Are 
there any tracing options? Is there a way (without using the debugger) to see 
what is going on inside the installer?

Thanks and regards,
Markus
