Re: [p2-dev] Interfaces for metadata classes

I have opened https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=260913 to track this issue.

Does anybody have a preference for when we should do this (i.e. Friday at 4:30 PST) or something?

Cheers,
Ian

as I recall, we made it a separate issue since we had several large patches awaiting integration (interfaces, versions, etc.) and wanted to get everything merged before moving the classes.

We decided to make this a separate issue, (so option number 2 in your list :) ). I will file a bug for this, and put a patch together.

Thanks John

    I noticed that the concrete metadata classes that we created interfaces for are still in the provisional API package. Since we have interfaces to form the API spec, and a factory method for creating instances, the concrete classes can now be moved into internal packages. In fact if we don't, a client could reasonably downcast to the concrete API class, which would break with a different implementation. Was this an oversight, or just staging the changes to make sure we fixed up all references before moving the classes? I vaguely remember a dicussion about this but couldn't see anything in the bug report about it.
