[p2-dev] Metadata Icons

We have a metadata property for Icons (PROP_ICON) and I'm looking at how we can integrate this with the publisher:

301475: [publisher] Integrate branding icon in the metadata
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=301475

It actually already works if you use a p2.inf file.

However, the property is currently specified to return a String (URI) that points (?) to the icon.  Do we really want a URI?  At one point I thought we talked about streaming the icon into the metadata.  If we are using a URI, who is responsible for loading / caching these things?

Susan and John, if you have thoughts on this, please comment on the bug report.

cheers,
ian
