This is a blog for Eclipse Package Drone™.

Package Drone is an open source (EPL), software artifact repository.

The main purpose is to use it as OSGi bundle repository.

It can receive OSGi bundles either from a Maven Tycho or a plain Maven build. Or you simply can upload the OSGi bundles using the web UI. These OSGi bundles (and Eclipse Features) can then be consumed using the P2 repository system from Eclipse, Maven Tycho, bndtools (using R5 XML Repositories).

However the design is modular and extensible so that it should also be possible to, for example, add an “RPM” aspect and render a “YUM” repository out of it.
