[equinox-dev] Re: [osgi-dev] Interoperability problems...

This is a subtle point which I had missed the importance of until now. It
implies that all OSGi developers, if they wish to ensure their bundles are
strictly compliant, must test against the RI downloaded from the OSGi
Alliance. In particular, a bundle tested against a copy of Equinox
downloaded from eclipse.org cannot necessarily be assumed to be compliant.

In light of this, could somebody tell me where on the OSGi Alliance
website (OUTSIDE the member area) I can download the RI?

Thanks,
Neil
