I don't understand why this needs a source build of A and B. And for a
devel environment the IDE build combined with the jUnit tests is just
fine to verify a change. Not to mention that the current Buckminster
build can be executed from the IDE as well.

Do not get me wrong. I am not lobbying to switch to bnd (even though it
would have simplified adopting OSGi CTs significantly) at all. The
current build system gets the job of producing bundles done just fine.
Lets focus on more important stuff than auxiliary build systems. :)

Personally, I'm not interested in converting ECF's build to Tycho.
However, if the majority reaches consensus to convert, I am obviously
available to answer questions regarding the current build system.
