Re: [cbi-dev] Install dependency to external p2 site

For EASE we have some optional features available on our p2 site which require Nebula components. So when a user selects such a feature without having the nebula update site configured, he will get an error message. What I want to do now is to configure my feature and define the remote nebula update site that is needed during installation. Is there a way to configure such a step? Eventually touchpoint actions could work. There exists an addRepository action. But from its documentation it seems it will only work for future updates.
Have you considered using repository references in your p2 metadata to link the Nebula site from the EASE one? See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=436318 .
