As Simon and Tom point out, some of
this work is going on already but it is disjoint and hard to pull together.
An incubator is the perfect cure for the technical problems as well
as giving a focal point to the work.
To move forward on this we should pull
together a proposal that scopes the work to be done. This helps new
people understand what work is being done so they can join in or propose
additional work and/or usecases. It would be good to outline some
scenarios that should be addressed if the incubator is successful as well
as some thoughts on timing (e.g., is this something for 3.2 or longer term
The proposal need not be complex/long,
just think of what you would want the incubator website to say.
Oh yeah, and you need a name. Without
getting too fancy, perhaps something like "Server-side" (e.g.,
The Equinox Server-side incubator).

Re: [equinox-dev] OSGi for
I have recently joined this list and this topic is the reason why. I
found a bug report filed by Simon that contains a list of patches.
So what from what I can gather work on this issue lives in the form of
these patches? And a new incubator is how you plan on moving them in?
