Re: [equinox-dev] OSGi R4.2 Stream

Do you have plan to publish builds of what will be developed?

The OSGi Alliance is busy working on the next release of the specification.
The release of the next OSGi specification will be long after the Eclipse
3.4 (Ganymede) release. To achieve a stable Ganymede release we will not
release new OSGi R4.2 API or implement new R4.2 functions in the Ganymede
stream (HEAD).

We need a place where we can continue to implement and prototype the next
OSGi specification release as it is being developed. I see two options.

1) Create an area in the Equinox incubator to develop the OSGi R4.2
implementation
2) Create a branch off of the current Ganymede stream (HEAD) for OSGi R4.2
implementation

I prefer using a branch instead of a separate repository project in the
incubator because it will make life easier when developing streams in
parallel, which we will likely need to do until the Ganymede release in
June 2008. I plan to create a branch based of next weeks I-Build for the
OSGi R4.2 work. Please let me know if you have any issues with this.

Tom
