Re: [p2-dev] How to add a new feature to an existing repository?

In p2, "publish" actually means "import": the publishers take information in some format (usually xml) and then convert it and add it to a p2 repository.  I found this use of "publishing" to be the opposite of what I first expected.

So to add a category description, you use the category publisher.  To add a product, you use the product publisher.  To add a bundle or feature, you use the feature and plugin publisher.

Hi Brian,
I've created a category file but don't know how to pass it to the p2.mirror ant task. From the current syntax documented, it doesn't seem to take a category file. Is there a hidden parameter that I can set?

Best Regards

Samuel Wu

I have never tried this, but I would assume it's the category id from the category.xml file.  You must set the id before publishing the category.xml file.  You should be able to set an id through the category.xml editor.
