> Attempts to use org.apache.felix's maven-bundle-plugin are skipped, as that
> only runs for 'jar' and 'bundle' packaging types -- but the plugin is using
> tycho's 'eclipse-plugin'.
> Here's what would likely work if maven-bundle-plugin could be used:
> Maven command-line output from using the above:
> [INFO] --- maven-bundle-plugin:2.3.7:manifest (default) @
> com.mgam.mforce.gdk.ogre ---
> [WARNING] Ignoring project type eclipse-plugin - supportedProjectTypes =
> [jar, bundle]
> So, does anybody have an idea how I can accomplish this?
