[p2-dev] Long pathnames in product (p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine/...)

[taking the discussion here from tycho-users]

Hi,

my product ZIP (built with Tycho) contains one very long pathname (145
characters)


p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine/profileRegistry/DefaultProfile.profile/.data/org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.eclipse.actions/jvmargs

which causes problems when unpacking into directories which themselves
have rather long names on some operating systems (path names being
restricted to 255 characters).

Is there a way to either avoid the creation of this file (BTW, what is
it good for?) or to at least shave off a couple of characters of the path?

Best wishes,

Andreas
