I didn't think mirroring copied those
references. If they do, please open a bug.

Re: [p2-dev] Mirroring to proxy repositories
I'm considering filing an enhancement request about having
an option to have the mirroring application to wipe out those references
to external sites (so that mirror users don't have those externals refs
Is this something that could be acceptable?
I seem to remember the subject was discussed somewhere, but can't find
the thread back. At the moment, we use the mirrorApp to mirror something
like 10 public repositories (that's why I noticed and logged the bug about
non-working merging feature that was corrected in the 3.5M3).
The mirroring works fine (still not using the merging, though). But
there's a problem : when I add the mirrored repository URL to my eclipse
installation where I deleted all other repositories entries, I always end
up having many repositories listed from the net.
The thing is: in the end, we wan't our developers to declare a unique Eclipse
P2 repository that they'll use to update or install "supported"
software... And at the moment, they could download it from the net directly
and obtain a version we didn't test...
I guess those URL comes from the already installed plugins/features. So,
how could we wipe them out, or ignore them or proxy them through our mirror
every necessary time (and stop new mirrors from appearing automatically
in the update interface...).
Is this something considered possible with P2? If so, could you please
let me know how to do that?
