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

I would like to publish a build of org.eclipse.osgi for OSGi R4.2. But that question is orthogonal to where the code lives. We can build out of the incubator or out of a branch, right?

It is a good question though. I'm not sure where we would publish the build on the Equinox download site. In the end it is not critical to build it until the next release of OSGi is closer to being final. By that time hopefully we would have moved the code into the mainline stream and build it with the rest of the current release (post 3.4).

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
