|Re: [p2-dev] duplicate IUs|
The potential problem with duplicates in a composite repository is that the user may be shown the same IU twice. This could be confusing, especially since composite repositories appear to the user as a single repository. However, the UI model elements today use a HashSet over the query results to perform some post-processing, so I don't think this will happen in practice in the SDK UI.
I do find it odd that the behavior will be different depending on what kind of query it is. That is, duplicates within a queryable would be filtered out, but any query that involves multiple queryables would not eliminate duplicates. Is there a reason for this difference or is it simply the result of the current implementation? The inconsistency bugs me a little.
