Replace metadata generator usage with the p2 publisher
Last modified: 2014-07-25 01:53:47 EDT
Description of problem:
The current eclipse rpm uses the metadata generator to generate p2 metadata for a variety of plug-ins. The metadata generator is deprecated and will be removed in the future. It also really isn't maintained anymore. We should switch to the p2 publisher to ensure we stay consistent with what upstream expects.
I think this should be done upstream as part of eclipse-build. Please file a bug there:
I apologize, I was confused. We have two options here:
- help eclipse-build upstream put JDT and PDE into dropins
- stop using the metadata generator for the Platform in Fedora (this bug)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This has been done upstream in eclipse-build and Fedora's git repository contains this work in the tip of master.
