Pascal Rapicault ha scritto:yes. We are allowing people write optimized repos that suit their needs. Someone may choose to implement a repo and publish the format as API but that is not currently our plan.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.
The Publisher is a rework of the 3.4 MetadataGenerator. The generator in 3.4 may do what you need. I suggest you look and see. Otherwise, in 3.5 the Publisher is getting the attention and the MetadataGenerator is being deprecated.>Maybe the people could generate the metadata they need by themselves if they feel that the standard tooling is not what they need?Thanks! I was not aware of p2 publisher. I was trying to find my way in p2 using eclipse 3.4.1. Apparently I should retarget my efforts to 3.5.
This is what the p2 publisher allows.
