I'm guessing you also want https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4914 I need to understand that fix better. I don't
like the idea of modelling fragment identity as hosted by their host bundles
since these are not payload capabilities. I fear something is being
overlooked. I need to get a testcase up in equinox to take a better
look at the issue.
Assuming the current fix is good or we find a proper
alternative I think we could target this fix for the Mars service release
1 (which is in September). But for now could you open an Equinox
framework bug to track the fixes you want made to the Felix resolver code
> - For my custom release which tag of equinox should I base my fork
Eventually we will create a new tag R4_5 in git, but
this will not happen until the end of this week. But unless something
really catastrophic occurs that would force us to respin I can tell you
that the commit at tag I20150603-2000 will be used for the R4_5 tag. I
would go ahead and use that for your fixes so that you have the latest
Mars release + the latest Felix resolver code.

'-' cannot be used as a version separator for the
qualifier. How are you trying to specify the qualifier. During
the build the qualifier is filled in because the key word 'qualifier' is
used in the manifest. I assume you instead just try to fill this
in with your own custom qualifier?

That is a sore topic. Unfortunately there is
not one that we can call official from the equinox project. Perhaps
we can work out with Ray Auge how to publish all the latest from Mars once
it is available. Unfortunately this is not automatic right now.
