Re: [p2-dev] Categories

James,

This should work, however because categories are IUs and IUs are always processed as a set, if a category has the same ID and version (don't ask about category versions), then only 1 will get chosen.

We have added a prefix to categories to help make the ID unique.  How did you generate your metadata for the categories?  (and what build did you use).

cheers,
ian

Can someone clarify the category behavior of a site. I was expecting the category to work differently. For instance if I have a category "apples". I would expect that I could pull in "Red Delicious IU" from one site and "Jonathan IU" from another site. But what happens one is site is arbitrarily chosen to represent a category and the remaining IUs from other sites are masked.
