Re: [p2-dev] Metadata Stamp

This has never been considered. The metadata version is here to address future cases of semantical changes, not to capture publisher generation. A few questions:
- Which use case would that be helping with?
- How would we use it?
- What is the version of the publisher? As people extend the publisher with their own action, then what does this become?

[p2-dev] Metadata Stamp




Has anyone looked at what would be involved with stamping the metadata with the version of the publisher used to write it?  This would help when debugging publisher problems as we could easily see what version (including qualifier) of the publisher was being used. I actually think is important enough to consider for 3.5. I know we are stamping the metadata with a version,  but that is often not enough.

cheers,
