Re: [p2-dev] Improving shared installations - questions

Hi Krysztof,

The change you mention in SimpleConfigurator were on my todo list. I will definitely look into  your patch and provide feedback in the bug.
Note that in the launcher modification that I have committed in the sharedinstall branch I already set the the property to trigger p2 to react the changes. Btw, because of the nature of the values found in the config.ini we will have to have changes in both the launcher and in simpleconfigurator, so I don't think it is necessary to have simpleconfigurator worry about the config.ini.
