This utility method was added as part of a bug fix to one of our
provider bundles, and the committer didn't initially realize that the 6
ECF bundles going into the platform integration build were now under API
When he realized that this method was added to a bundle under API freeze
he removed the method and it's no longer present (in M7). But it did
get into the integration build, since it's done automatically and I
didn't know about the change until after the integration build had occurred.
So this isn't deliberate...ECF has as a policy to freeze the API on
these bundles at M6+0...in keeping with the platform. It was simply an
honest mistake. My apologies for causing work for everyone.
LMK if I should do something more/other to resolve this.

This is considered to be a new API added after API freeze and therefore it
would require PMC approval.
I don't know whether ecf bundles are part of the API freeze or not. If
not, then I should add this entry to the exclude list.
If yes, then it would be nice to send a note to the eclipse-pmc mailing
list to request approval for the new API with a bug report associated with
The template is:
Like this we can then add it to the exclude list with the appropriate bug
id reference and we have a tracecability of API changes post 3.4M6a.
