Description Andrew Overholt 2008-06-25 15:19:48 UTC
The current plan is to upgrade to Eclipse 3.4 in Fedora 10.  We can use this as
a tracker bug for issues.

OTTOMH I can think of a few things we'll need to do:

- use p2
-- update pdebuild.sh to generate p2 metadata
-- ensure our metadata is properly read by p2 if we're going to use the dropins
approach for additional plugins
-- ensure our arch-specific/arch-independent split still works
- ensure we have all dependent packages updated and OSGi-ified a la Orbit
(eclipse.org/orbit)
- ensure secondary arches can still build and run

Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2008-06-25 15:54:29 UTC
todo++:

- OSGi-ify objectweb-asm and provide a monolithic JAR to match Orbit's JAR
- ensure automated tests run against 3.4 and we have no failures

Also see:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Eclipse34

which will more than likely be kept up to date more than this bug (except for
blocker bugs).

I realise this work is still ongoing, but it looks to me as if eclipse.spec
should be creating/owning the "dropins" directory, perhaps as
/usr/share/eclipse/dropins.  I thought it might save some Bugzilla red-tape to
mention it now, just in case.

Thanks, Sean.  I had forgotten to add that.  It's definitely needed :)
