I don't think it makes a lot of sense releasing bundles one by one. I would be in favor of
a single release of all (stable) bundles.

bundle and package versions, use a version policy that conforms to the one the OSGi Alliance
recommends and only bump versions when things actually change. That means that our next release
will probably contain bundles and packages that will not all be the same. This is very similar
to the OSGi specification itself, that is released as for example 4.2 but contains packages
with versions like 1.3, 1.2, 2.1, etc.
Makes totally sense - I think it's important that we make it easy to
install and run ACE, which gets us hopefully a lot of interested people
having a look, test driving it etc.
