I am trying to work on a way to include directly bundles in an
update-site, without having to use features for indirections.
I think I succeeded to implement some necessary changes in Tycho to
be able to categorize directly bundles into categories, as I
requested here: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=378338
. However, I am still not sure how that could apply to Tycho.
AFAI Understand, Tycho does 2 things with an eclipse-repository:
first it gathers all features (and included features and plugins)
defined in the repo; and then it applies a categoryPublisher on it.
Am I right?
So I have a question on this first step: can you please tell me
whether Tycho has its own mechanism for creating the repository
contents, or if it relies on p2? In both case, a link to the piece
of code responsible of gathering the features/ and plugins/ content
from a category.xml is very welcome.
