|[p2-dev] Equinox is requesting a post RC4 Helios Final Build|
We have detected a regression bug in Equinox p2 that we think is major and should be fixed for the Helios Final Build (post RC4). The bug prevents the successful installation of software into all EPPs that are in a shared installation. This is generally how the Linux community uses the EPPs so we think the bug is quite severe for that scenario. See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=315853. The fix is low risk. We are currently doing some more review and testing of the bug fix. Once we have confirmed the fix is good we will be requesting a new contribution from eclipse/equinox to include the fix.
We are now at the point where autobuilds for Helios is turned off and builds are done upon request only. We will let you know when we are ready for a new build. If all goes well it should be ready by Tomorrow, Tuesday June 8th.
