Re: [equinox-dev] [pde-dev] Repackaging org.osgi.service.component.annotations from Equinox

I don't like that approach which leaves us with maintaining and shipping the same thing twice. Let's continue the discussion in the bug report.

Hi Peter,

I think it's possible for PDE to ship their own jar of the code. You can simply copy the sources from Equinox. I think you still need a CQ, though. It can be a re-use CQ for a subset of the original CQ. Might be easier to jut go with a full re-use.

I've cc'ed equinox-dev because I think this topic may be interesting for them, too.

Hi,

in order to improve user experience with DS Annotations, I need to contribute package org.osgi.service.component.annotations to PDE projects' classpath (
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=488800). This package is already part of Equinox's org.eclipse.osgi.services bundle; however, in order to make these annotations available to external builders, they would need to be in a separate jar (otherwise users would have to place the entire bundle on the build path).

Would it be OK to extract that package from Equinox and provide it via PDE as a separate JAR? Since this isn't new code contribution, do I need any special permissions/process? Thanks!
