That's true, but then again, having great search capabilities really
helps when you're creating an aggregation or trying to find cause of
errors in the build. I would be happy to work with Igor and the people
behind the p2 browser to get it's capabilities into the b3 editor if
B3 Aggregator is a great tool for defining aggregates of (subsets of) p2 repositories. The main purpose however is to verify and build the aggregate (be it as a pure composite p2 repo, partly mirrored artifacts, or fully mirrored). I used to leverage the browsing capabilities which comes with the B3 Editor, but this is really limited. I switched to p2browser for any kind of non-trivial search or dependency analysis task (e.g. show me all IUs which depend on a given IU).
It would be handy to have all p2browser capabilities within the B3 editor, but I understand that B3 is really focusing on the build use case ...
