Something like that would indeed be a nice idea. It would certainly help a lot of people using
Karaf. A while ago we looked into supporting the features from Karaf in ACE, but ran into
some issues that made a direct mapping a bit harder. Those have been summarized in an analysis
[1] and bug reports about the lack of life cycle [2] and upgrade [3] support of such features.
That does not mean you could, in most circumstances, take a Karaf feature definition file
and somehow convert it into ACE features (and/or distributions).

Sounds like a good idea.

Its format is pretty straightforward (it's a bnd file) and lists all bundles in a run configuration.
