Re: [p2-dev] Doc reorg

Andrew, I was just going to start on the features and bundles & product publisher task.  :-).

I have reserved space for these in the p2_publisher.html.  Do you want to put them there? 

If you apply the latest patch from:
248509: [doc] Provide documentation for p2 publisher bundle
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=248509

You will see the space I have reserved for these tasks.

cheers,
ian

I have the following in my workspace,

- ant tasks for publishing (currently includes p2.publish.featuresAndBundles, p2.publish.product).
These two pages are looking for a home

I also have a separate pages for PDE/Build extensions to the publisher which includes eclipse.publish.featuresAndBundles, eclipse.gatherBundle, eclipse.gatherFeature, and eclipse.brand.p2.artifacts.

[p2-dev] Doc reorg





I'm proposing the perform the following changes to the isv doc:
1) Reorganize the content of the "provisioning platform" section into 4 subsections representing the "activities" people would be interested in performing with p2:
- Managing an eclipse installation with the command line (to replace / extend the "installing software using the p2 director application)
- Metadata generation (publisher, p2.inf, category generation)
- Repository management (including mirror, composite repo)
- Build integration (toRunnable, p2 map entry, product) in addition to what is already in the PDE doc.

2) Move the "provisioning platform (p2) subsection" as a top level entry in the programmers guide
I will start on that reorg now, but please send feedback.

Also, we will have to review the Build related doc in the PDE doc to include/change things like:
- Using repository as build input
- Review the section on ant scripts
- Review the section on packaging eclipse components
- Generate metadata from a 3.3 style product
- Reuse the SDK metadata (like it is described
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/Reusing_Platform_Metadata) and give an example on how to rebrand the platform.
