Re: [p2-dev] Categories

As an example where this works.
The "Uncategorized" category from different update sites contains everything uncategorized from all sites.
For it to work, though, the categories have to have unique ids and share the same name.

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
