|Re: [p2-dev] FW: P2 Profile Questions|
So, if I undertand well, this means that p2 metadata is a sort of "private contract" of the metadata repository, and will never have e published format. People will rely on p2 APIs to write/read matadata.
>Maybe you could publish a p2 metadata spec ?
The externalized format of an IU (p2 metadata) is left unspecified on purpose. The externalized format is the responsibility of the metadata repository.
>Maybe the people could generate the metadata they need by themselves if they feel that the standard tooling is not what they need?
This is what the p2 publisher allows.
