Re: [equinox-dev] Jetty version for Luna?

With Ray's Auge's joining as an Equinox committer (welcome Ray!) to apparently work at least partially on HttpService, and the changes wrt this bug [1], and the fact that we are now on the Mars release cycle, I would like to re-ask some planning questions

1) Is it reasonable to expect that Jetty 9 will be used for Equinox in Mars (rather than Jetty 8)?
2) Does this interact at all with Ray's work on supporting OSGi R6 HttpService specification?...i.e. is it reasonable to expect that R6 HttpService will be supported in Equinox (by jetty9)?
3) Assuming 'yes' to one or both of above, are there any plans WRT timing of release for 1 or 2 (i.e. which Mars milestones)?

The primary reason these questions matter to me is that ECF's impl of OSGi R6 Remote Services allows for the use of multiple modular transport providers, and we've been requested by the community (and have some contributions already) to use/depend upon websockets for a public RS provider [2]. Naturally we would like to reuse the Jetty impl of websockets to implement this provider, and use the latest/most up-to-date websockets impl, which I assume is on the Jetty 9 stream.

As well, there is the potential that other RS/RSA users would like to use R6 HttpService to create their own RS providers, and this would be vastly simplified if an R6-compliant HttpService impl was available via EF/Equinox/Jetty. We would like to make this as easy as possible for RS/RSA consumers.

In any event, just wanted to open re-discussion some of these changes, now that we are well into Mars cycle.

FWIW, I will offer some technical collaboration and support (e.g. at least testing in RS/RSA use cases for websockets and httpservice) for technical work implied above. ECF's resources for new commitments are limited, however, as many are probably aware.

I assume that since the current Equinox HttpService impl is provided by Jetty that some version of Jetty will be used for Equinox Luna. If that's right, what version of Jetty will be used?
