Description of core feature confusing

                 Key: GERONIMODEVTOOLS-272
             Project: Geronimo-Devtools
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: eclipse-plugin
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0, 2.0.2, 2.0.x, 2.1.0, 2.1.x
            Reporter: Ted Kirby
            Assignee: Tim McConnell

When you install the eclipse plugin with the eclipse update manager, you get a choice of Geronimo
WTP Server Adapters:
  Geronimo Core Feature, 
and a series of versioned server adapters of the form:
  Geronimo vX.X Server Adapter

When you click on them, they all have the same descripton:

"This feature provides the WTP Server Adapter and additional development tools for the Apache
Geronimo server."

This text might be customized to include the version number, or changed to:

"This feature provides the WTP Server Adapter and additional development tools for {color:red}this
specific version of the{color} Apache Geronimo server."

For the core feature, however, the text is quite misleading.  Installing it does not give
you any working server adapter.  So, it's description should be changed to something like:

"This feature provides core support required for the WTP Server Adapter for specific versions
of the Apache Geronimo server."

It would be nice if the core feature did not show up at all in the list to install.  It is
included by those version-specific real server adapters that need it.

Also, not sure what these "additional development tools" are, or where the user finds out
about them, but they can probably be removed from the core feature, if that feature itself
can't be removed from the install list.
