Re: [p2-dev] A typical use-case

I'm very interested to look into this repository analysis tool and would appreciate to get a binary trial. I know B3 Aggregator (and I like it), but I'm missing some search related features like "where used". 
Would be great if someone can point me to a similar tool for analyzing relations coded in feature.xml and plugin-manifests.

A shameless self-promotion :-) I have a tool that lets you browse p2
repositories, see composite structures, IU dependency tree/list, etc. I
can provide prebuilt binaries if anyone is interested (the sources are
at github already).
