[p2-dev] Using remote zip'd repos in p2

Hi everyone,

Do we have plans to support repos in the following form:

jar:http://eclipse.org/equinox-sdk.zip!/

By shipping all these "zip'd repos", it seems like it would be a good idea to let people craft their targets (or install their software) directly from Eclipse without first D/L the zips first.  This appears to "almost work", but it looks like we set a timeout for the content.jar file.  If we can download the repo, crack it open, and read the content.jar before the timeout, then we're golden.  But if not, then all bets are off.

Does anyone have thoughts on this?

cheers,
ian
