The sticking point was lack of support for some key bundle building 
features in Maven ... which got addressed this week with the Felix M2 
Plugin.  With that hurdle cleared we have started updating directories 
to follow the M2 standard layout and we'll start adding pom.xml's in 
parallel to the project.xml's.

You'll also see us break up the core into finer-grained subprojects so 
we can address different use cases.  For example, we have a JDK Prefs 
SPI implementation in the core that will spin off and be used to provide 
the OSGi Preferences Service backed by just the JNDI provider.
