- David and Bjorn to start setting up the build
- David to setup a basic build for use in the mean time.
- Other discussion topics
- Bundling multi-JAR distributions: for libraries comprising multiple JAR files, where they are commonly used together, perhaps it is convenient for Orbit and its consumers alike to repackage them as a single OSGi bundle. This can be done by nesting the original JARs within the bundle or by expanding their contents together into the bundle, both of which approaches have their pros and cons.
- Bundle Creation Details (see Bug 159596 for reference)
- Should the bundle version be the exact version or should we add a qualifier to allow for changes?
- Should we be specifying the Execution Environment and dependancies? If yes, then what is the easiest way to do this if we don't have the source?
