Yes :-)
What I also would like to see is a new site download tgz as at the company I
work doesn't have internet access at the work place.
We now use our own local update site.
The current site zip though still contains the invalid feature definitions with
the embedded " inside the id attribute:
I already posted a request in the user list if the site tgz could be fixed but
received no response on it yet.

I've already corrected it myself for now but needed other corrections also for
which I like to ask if these could be made to the official release so we don't
have to do those again next time.

The whole idea of the site tgz is allowing it to be used offline using your own
local update site.
But, the site.xml and the feature.xml definitions still contain update url
definitions pointing back to http://subclipse.tigris.org/update. As result of
these, after an initial installation eclipse will try to look for updates there
the next time (leading to irritating error dialogs).
As far as I see it this is not needed at all. Can't those update url definitions
not just be removed from the site.xml and the feature.xml (as I had to do myself).

By default, eclipse will search for the plugins etc. relative from the site.xml
location which still be http://subclipse.tigris.org/update if updating online,
or from our local update site as we use it.
Thus, removing those update url definitions doesn't bring anything other than
requiring manual hacking if you need to use your own update site.
Only when an update site has to be moved like it was from looney to tigris a few
weeks ago this *is* a useful feature I think.
