Re: [equinox-dev] Transition

Well, beyond the framework, the OSGi spec specifies services. But services 
must be implemented by bundles. So it makes more sense for implementations 
to be called bundles. 

I also think the bundles(services) component will end up with more than 
bundles which implement OSGi defined services. In the proposal you mention 
things like the Eclipse Extension registry being part of Equinox. Under 
which component will that reside? I would imagine bundles.

Re: [equinox-dev] Transition







Good point.  Do you have some examples?  Keep in mind that the "services" 
component is targetted at implementations of the other parts of the spec, 
not random other function.  How does the full OSGi itself talk about the 
distinction between the core framework and these other parts?

I like it.

Perhaps the organization should be framework/*bundles*/incubator. There 
are many interesting bundles which do not themselves provide services. So 
calling the component bundles rather than services is more general.

[equinox-dev] Transition







There is a move afoot to transition Equinox to the Eclipse PMC and develop 

it into an OSGi community.  Please take a minute to review the 
documentation at 
 
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/indextech.cgi/~checkout~/equinox-home/transition.html 


and surface any issues or questions.
