Hi Jean,

I think this is an oddity introduced by my wrapper scripts which drove 
the 10.2 build targets. The release manager has to gather up the release 
artifacts from a couple directories and consolidate them in a single 
directory for signing. The build targets create two copies of the 
eclipse core plugin: one which has the kind of name you see in 10.1.3, 
and one which has the extra subversion revision stamp you see in the 
10.2 releases. The contents of the files are identical. I was just 
putting the wrong copy into the consolidated directory.

There's nothing to fix in the codeline. Just in my head. I have amended 
my consolidation script so that it should get the core plugin from the 
correct place next time.

Alternatively, we could change the build targets so that the eclipse 
core plugin is dropped into the same directory as the other release 
artifacts (tools/release). That might help the next release manager 
figure out which copy of the core plugin to use.

Thanks for pointing this out.
