Re: [p2-dev] ECF feature structure

Hey Scott,

That looks like a task to me. I've noticed there is already some work done in 330517 - I'd like to test some approach as soon as I'm ready with continuous P2 build.

Best regards,

Subject: [p2-dev] ECF feature structure

Hi p2ers,

Currently, ECF's usage in p2 for filetransfer has been represented by 
adding the appropriate/necessary ECF plugins to the p2.ui feature (I 

For some time this has caused difficulties for ECF consumers...because 
those that wish to use parts of ECF other than filetransfer (e.g. OSGi 
remote services/remote service admin) have had to get older versions of 
ECF core bundles from Equinox/Eclipse...rather directly from the latest 
version of our repository.

During the Luna development cycle, we would like to do some feature 
restructuring [1] so that consumers can more easily get all of ECF 
directly from our repository...e.g. for installation of RS/RSA in OSGi 

The reason I'm bringing this up here is that this will likely require 
some coordination with p2 releng...and I've not tracked who within the 
p2/Equinox team is doing p2 releng work now.  Would it be possible to 
get a contact within the p2 team for this work over the coming months?
