Doesn't STS support the "dropins" folder?
I'm trying to install a plugin that doesn't provide an update site (ER Master). In "plain" Eclipse, I can copy the plugin's JAR to $ECLIPSE_HOME/dropins/ and it will be picked up on startup.
In STS, I copied the exact same JAR to dropins/ but STS didn't pick it up. Following the instructions on Eclipsepedia's "Debugging dropins", I created a .options file and started STS with -debug.
STS found the .options file but not the plugin inside dropins, see attached P2 log.
