As BJ mentions we started the page http://wiki.eclipse.org/RT/OSGi_Certification to track the RT OSGi specification implementations, but it needs to be updated. Cristiano mentions that it is hard to use subsystems with equinox. The more general issue is it is hard to use any existing provisioning system that is not subsystem aware with a framework that is being used to manage a set of subsystem installations.

The implementation that I'm aware is the Apache Aries Subsystems implementation .
But besides the fact that it is running in Equinox there are important complementary spec features that wasn't implemented at Equinox yet that makes difficult to use subsystems now with it.
The most important are the missing generic Capabilities header support in P2  (and PDE) and the impossibility to use P2 as a repository service

First question: Does Equinox Kepler implement the OSGI R5 Subsystem specification?
A broader question: Does the RT project have a listing of the various OSGi specs/chapters...and what implementations are provided by RT projects for given specs? ECF, for example, has impls of both the Remote Service and Remote Service Admin specifications, but I'm not at all sure about a number of others (e.g. transaction spec, provisioning, subsystem, etc). Would it make sense to have a RT page/pages that has that information for interested consumers? I've had several consumers ask me directly about such information, and I'm probably not the only one.
