[p2-dev] discovery plug-ins added to cvs

Hi P2ers,

as discussed on a previous conference call I have added the following plug-ins to the P2 cvs:

 org.eclipse.equinox.p2.discovery
 org.eclipse.equinox.p2.discovery.compatibility
 org.eclipse.equinox.p2.tests.discovery
 org.eclipse.equinox.p2.ui.discovery

The discovery code was originally part of Mylyn and has been refactored to the P2 namespace . It provides an extensible UI component for installing extensions from a catalog and can also be used as an front-end for installing features from P2 repositories. 

Most of the discussion around the new bundles is on this bug, it's subtasks and other bugs tagged as [discovery]:

 295273: [discovery] move Mylyn Connector Discovery UI into P2
 https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=295273

I plan on posting more documentation on using and extending the discovery component and publishing catalogs in the upcoming weeks.

I am looking forward to being part of the P2 team and appreciate any feedback or questions. 

Steffen
