Tycho 0.24, pom less builds and Eclipse m2e maven integration

A very short technical article which might be useful in the next few days.

Tycho 0.24 has been released, and one of its most interesting features is the support for POM-less builds. The Tycho 0.24 release notes explain the use of the extension. However, there is a problem with the .mvn/extensions.xml not being found when using Eclipse variables in the “Base Directory” field of the run configuration.

I have created an m2e Bugzilla https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=481173 showing problem and workaround:

Update: The m2e team fixed the bug within 48 hours. Very nice. Should be in one of the next builds.
