We have discussed that, some people would prefer to generate the 
manifest files from block.xml and some other, I for example, prefer to 
have explicit manifest files. There are a number of configuration files 
that we will need that might have some overlap:, block.xml 
gump.xml and pom.xml. We decided to wait a little bit until we have 
implemented more of the block and sitemap handling stuff in the block 
architecture before we decide.

Also there is some activity in the Oscar project on writing a 
OSGi-plugin for Maven2.

Normally bundle (block) manifest files will not be as complicated as the 
  one for the Cocoon core bundle, which currently is far to monolithic. 
The long term plan is to remove almost all of the jars that currently is 
part of the Cocoon core bundle (most of lib/core and lib/endorsed) and 
package them as bundles. But it will require some work to write (or 
generate) bundle files for all these jars. Hopefully we can work 
together with the maintainers for at least some of these jars so that 
they put a bundle manifest file in the jars, (this should IMO be 
possible for the Excalibur and Commons jars).

The Cocoon core bundle should probably also be split into a number of 

OTH, it should be rather easy to generate the Bundle-Classpath during 
the build, so if anyone have feel like it, please go ahead.
