Until this gets sorted out, I suggest that we limit ourselves to http.

And I don't mean "in theory",
but I mean what should "we" use in our mirrorsURL attribute?
I have a memory of long ago being told
"... doesn't use ftp, so just as well restrict to http mirrors only".
But, I'm wondering ... am I remembering the old updateManager?
I've poked around, and see the platform
does _not_ restrict to http only, and some old forum post that say something
like "p2 uses ECF so its what ever ECF supports so ftp should be ok".
So, before I change the mirrors URL
in our common repository, I wanted some expert advise or confirmation from
p2-dev mailing list
