Re: [equinox-dev] bundle builds using Maven

I'm using maven-bundle-plugin from Felix to generate the OSGi manifest
for all Maven generated jars, and it's gonna be probably the default
behavior in next version of Maven.

We added some tooling to generate 3rd party OSGi bundles pretty easily

yep, I've seen a lot of people hit the same problem when using maven to
build OSGi bundles, so I try to get people used to 'mvn install' in tutorials.
