Re: [p2-dev] Creating a Target Platform and p2...

Hi Eric,

Yes, this is expected behaviour.  The target resolves the required dependencies of each location independently.  If you want to create a target from multiple sites you can uncheck the "Include required software" button at the bottom of the Add Content from Software Site wizard.  When trying to gather requirements, the site will (using the p2 slicer) grab all dependencies that are available in the repo you are working with and will ignore dependencies it cannot find.

I've been trying to figure out a weird issue I've been getting trying to
create a Target platform from an update site.

Basically the issue appears to be that when creating a Target Platform,
P2 does not look outside the selected repo to resolve dependencies. If
the Helios repo is used everything resolves fine. If the local project
repo is used there are errors that required dependencies are missing -
Even if the default platform is used as a starting point (so the
platform isn't used to resolve dependencies either).

Is this expected behavior?
