The current plan is that Spring-OSGi will be released in december, so we 
   should most definitively not let Cocoon 2.2 wait for it. Right now, 
I'm the only one working on Cocoon-OSGi so it must be more of a 
community effort before we include it in any release.

OSGi does not work woth "split packages", i.e. that some of the classes 
of a package is defined in one bundle and others in another bundle. So 
some reorganization of package structure in Cocoon is needed. This 
probably means that Cocoon-OSGi would need to be in 2.3 or maybe 3.0 for 
the core blocks.
