Equinox p2: Large Scale Deployment

Last year's Eclipse release (Ganymede) came with a new provisioning platform called p2. For years, Eclipse has been shipped along with a component called the "Update Manager", which allowed users to easily update their Eclipse installations. Nevertheless, year after year, and especially when Eclipse 3.0 came out, it has become much more than just an IDE: it is now a software platform, built on top of Equinox (the reference implementation of the OSGi specification).
