Description Chris Aniszczyk 2010-04-12 15:48:49 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.
Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2010-04-12 15:52:55 EDT
I think this should be done upstream as part of eclipse-build.  Please file a bug there:

Comment 2 Andrew Overholt 2010-04-12 16:02:37 EDT
I apologize, I was confused.  We have two options here:

- help eclipse-build upstream put JDT and PDE into dropins
  (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=294114 and
- stop using the metadata generator for the Platform in Fedora (this bug)
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 07:19:02 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

This has been done upstream in eclipse-build and Fedora's git repository contains this work in the tip of master.
