Hello all,

First of all, I agree with Karl as well, we should try to get a release ready!

This I agree about. In fact, after talking to you I already updated the getting started guide.
Feel free to comment on it, or extend it even further.

Indeed we discussed adding a Karaf based distribution. This however should not replace the
existing distribution, but add extra targets for people that want to use Karaf. As such, I
don't think we should hold off the release for it as we can always include it in the next
one. On the other hand, if you have it almost done, by all means commit it so it can be included!

> - add a Karaf feature deployer (ACE-76)

This has been discussed somewhat more off-list but I don't think the issue has yet been updated
with the conclusions.

In short:
a) We can try to "import" a karaf feature and try to convert it into an ACE feature.
b) We cannot however support Karaf features as is, as there are still some outstanding issues
with that:
   Karaf features cannot be updated:
   https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-399
   There are mismatches between what deployment admin can do, and what Karaf features could
do:
   https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACE-109

So having a) would be nice, but again I don't see we should hold off the release for it. Option
b) needs a lot more discussion and even fixing in Karaf before we can properly support it.

no more a show blocker.

We should release:
 - Apache Felix Dependency Manager (core)
 - Apache Felix Deployment Admin
 - Apache Felix Auto Config Processor

I'm working on those.

it tomorrow.

Again, I don't mind including things if they are done. I would rather not delay our release
for features that are not yet done. We need to finally get a release out the door, with many
more to hopefully follow.
