Re: [p2-dev] tooling... IU requirements

That falls in the terrible hack category :)

Because we have these catch all CUs, we need to be able to ignore those when a more specific CU is available. 
The original hack that got put in place is one where the CU that had the most "hostRequirements" match would win and this is why you need to have the two requirements here.
There is a bug discussing a better solution but I can't seem to find it.

Since nothing happens for free in p2, there needs to be a configuration unit (an IUFragment) to delivers this information to every bundle. To avoid the creation of a plethora of CU (one per IU that delivers a bundle) it is much more maintainable to have one CU that attaches to multiple IUs. An example of such IU is tooling.osgi.bundle.default.
