Re: [p2-dev] Metadata generator

There was a lot of work done in PDE/Build for 3.6 to move off the metadata generator.
There is a kind of compatibility layer that re-implements the metadata.generator's applications using the publisher.  I believe PDE/Build was changed to use the publisher this way to support 3.4 style releng setups that may still be around.

In theory, the metadata.generator was transparently replaceable, but we never fully pulled the trigger on the EclipseGenerator application.

Just to be sure, it's not being used anywhere in the SDK is it? (PDE/Build for example).
