Re: [p2-dev] FeaturesAction and absolute root files

Publisher support for root properties is incomplete and only works in the most basic cases.  
The code there seems to be missing support for:
- ant wildcard patterns
- absolute: and file: prefixes
- root.folder properties
Also it may generate chmod instructions for files that don't exist, resulting in failures at install time.

See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=278086

The proper support for these properties is provided by PDE/Build.   See the <eclipse.gatherFeature/> ant task and GatherFeatureTask#createRootAdvice

[p2-dev] FeaturesAction and absolute root files

A Buckminster user has problems making the root files working.
Apparently he is using the 'absolute:' prefix described in the


I cannot find any support for that in the publisher. Has the support for
that being dropped or am I looking in the wrong place?
