Subject [jira] [Commented] (UIMA-2475) eclipse p2 update site instead of old-style update site

Our actual update site is in www.apache.org/dist/uima/eclipse-update-site.  You can point
some browsers (like firefox, but not chrome) to this URL and see the contents.

The release manager, after a release is approved, is responsible for copying the right files

project will just have the "new" ones, which is why careful copying is needed :-).

Note that this directory on www.apache.org/dist/uima  is part of Apache's "mirror" system.
 We attempt to allow the Eclipse install mechanism to discover the mirrors and make use of

> The UIMA Eclipse update site (www.apache.org/dist/uima/eclipse-update-site) is an Eclipse
3.3 (or older) update site. Since Eclipse 3.4, the recommended update site layout is p2:

> I've been bitten by this update site issue because old-style update sites make it impossible
to resolve build-time dependencies when building Eclipse plugins:
