This is exactly what I have been doing, and it mostly works fine. The
3.4.x repos don't appear have any metadata problems.
There was one persistent error I was getting on an IU I created (via
the metadata generator) that refered to PyDev in its feature.xml file.
It complained about not finding a swt 3.5.0 library. I was able to
get rid of this problem by specifying a specific version range for
Pydev in my feature.xml. I have referred to other IUs without
specifying version numbers, and I haven't yet tracked down what in the
Pydev repository is causing the problem. But the 3.5.0 errors seem
not to be indicative of the actual problem.
