[p2-dev] A scary thought


I've had some discussions regarding how to set the mirrorsURL. One idea that came up was to let it point to a composite. If I'm correct that is a very bad idea because it means that in order to find an artifact, p2 will do the following:

1. It finds an artifact composite. The composite appoints an artifact repo.
2. The artifact repo contains a mirrorsURL. p2 picks that up.
3. p2 selects a mirror.
4. Now we're back at #1.

It will take some time to find that artifact...

Is this the way it works? If it is, perhaps this needs to be communicated.
