      Description

      Right now, the way to push an update is to publish it to the ajax update site
      and a user can get it by choosing the Download additional server adapters link
      in the New Server wizard.

      The question was raised as to why it is not shown from the Help->Software
      updates list. I was able to get it to show up there by adding
      https://ajax.dev.java.net/eclipse to the list of update sites.

      Should the plugin automatically add this site to the list of update sites when
      it is installed? Or is this counter to how server adapters are meant to be
      updated? Or is the Download additional server adapters code already going
      somewhere (besides the ajax site) that should be in the list of update sites?

        which discusses the need to provide archived downloads somewhere (other than on
        the update site?)

        The UC site for the plugin is added to the list of sites automatically, but it
        is not automatically checked as active. See more discussion on

        I was hoping this behavior was improved in eclipse 3.5, but I just tried in
        3.5.1 and it is the same.
