Cool :)

Sorry, I am using -installIU.

Hmm.  So, for the Eclipse SDK, what should I use as installIU?

org.eclipse.sdk ?
org.eclipse.sdk.feature.group ?

In general, should it just be the IU corresponding to the top-level
feature name?

The reason I'm asking is because I'm investigating whether or not we
should move away from using dropins for our RPMs.  What we've been doing
so far is using the director to install the Eclipse platform and putting
everything else -- JDT, PDE, CDT, Mylyn, etc., etc. -- in dropins.  I
want to see if we can run some sort of director operation to provision
those after they're installed.

Thanks,
