While struggling with a build problem I discovered that my master
When I investigate http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/updates, the Install
New Software... dialog takes a very very long time to list the contents
which comprises all releases of projects such as CDO, Modisco, OCL,
UML2, Xtext and older releases of projects such as Acceleo, EMF Compare,
EMFt. The repo seems to have many old but only some recent releases of EMF.
Given that all the good stuff is consistently in a SimRel repo, is
something else huge and incomplete of any value at all? I suspect that
this kind of secondary repo that predates the SimRel is a major cause of
the very poor performance of P2 installation. My workspace has so many
'available sites' that I cannot be bothered to keep disabling them.
Rather I do ZIP installs, with contact all update sites disabled.
However http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/updates is not one of them, so
perhaps the master featrure update sites are just ignored.
What and where should projects specify their update sites?
