Re: [p2-dev] API for "Available Software Sites" pref store

Note that it is highly recommended to use the API that Ned mentioned. Trying to directly tap into the underlying preference store could lead to troubles, especially when installations are more fancy (e.g shared installs).

Blech! I only use P2 in the context of an RCP application with a fully custom UI, I hope my application is not caching every URI it's ever been passed...

Looking at the IRepositoryManager interface, looks like you could `getKnownRepositories(REPOSITORIES_ALL)`, and then call `removeRepository()` for each one.

Either there should be a way to tell p2 API not to cache these URIs or those URIs have to be removed from "Available Software Sites". We couldn't find a way to do the former and hence the main focus of this email is the latter.

I don't know anything about changing prefs for "Available Software Sites".

But, it is definitely possible to fetch remote repositories using just the raw P2 API.

This blog post does a pretty good job describing how.
