Sorry for asking technical questions but I have encountered a strange

Is there a mean to sweep off these reds in Eclipse IDE ?
I have seen also that org.eclipse.ecf.osgi.services is full of empty
packages classes even if they exist in the source.
This isn't the case as far as I can tell. The
org.eclipse.ecf.osgi.services project is for holding the classes that we
receive from OSGi compendium for the discovery and distribution packages
(e.g. ServicePublication, DistributionProvider and others). The classes
themselves should be (and as far as I can tell are) checked into our
repository as *.class files...under <project
root>/org/osgi/service/discovery (and distribution at the leaf). Note
that this CQ is being used to track the IP clearance as we receive
updates from OSGI: http://dev.eclipse.org/ipzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2959
(BTW...just so people are aware...we/ECF don't have anything to do with
the contents of the o.e.e.osgi.services bundle...it comes from OSGi and
we incorporate new versions into the ECF codebase as soon as we get IP
approval via the above CQ [after Thomas receives the drop from OSGi].
We are hopeful that with RFC119 that there won't be very many/any more
significant changes to these classes...as we would like to have them be
very stable in anticipation for ECF 3.0/Galileo release...but we have
conveyed this desire to the RFC119 spec authors...i.e. for stability as
we get close to release...but we can't control what happens with the
OSGi spec approval/revision/finalization process. We will update these
classes from OSGI as rapidly as possible after changes...given our need
to follow the Eclipse Foundation IP approval process).
These classes should be available to resolve dependencies in
o.e.e.osgi.services.distribution...they are currently in my workspace
and no compile errors occur locally for me (or in the build of these
bundles on the build server). So I'm currently confused about why you
(Pierre) are seeing compile errors, because the presence of the
org.eclipse.ecf.osgi.services project (and the classes that it contains)
*should* resolve any dependencies in o.e.e.osgi.services.discovery and
o.e.e.osgi.services.distribution (at least for the classes from OSGi
compendium for discovery and distribution).
Please let me know if this helps.
So I suppose it's under construction , is it ?
