Re: [p2-dev] Why is the director needed during install?

Hi Pascal,
That was interesting news.

My use-case is that I first aggregate a repository. The result of the aggregation is always a P2 repository. Seems to me, it would be beneficial if the aggregator could resolve this issue so that the resulting P2 repository is complete.

How would I do that? I guess I would start by looking for the partial IU's. But then what?

Regards,
Thomas Hallgren

This dependency is from the eclipse touchpoint to the publisher. It is
necessary in order to generate the complete IUs for the bundles being
installed from the legacy update sites (becasue when we are generating

features).
The code is written this way so we can honor the fact that the dependency
on the publisher is optional. For example if you know you only contact p2
repos.
