Subject Re: [OSGi] Adding Manifests to Dependency Jars

Yeah - Sorry about that EMF thing man, however, I think Tuscany has a 
help clinic for EMF addicts.

If that does not work Soak b@lls in hot oil for 1 hour.

Who says headlines are bad????

OK - I'm starting work on the "Pure" RPM installer for ADS now, and 
somewhere along the way,
when I start seeing the whole picture end to end (in 2020), I'll add a 
template for OSGi manifest
generation and some mojo insertion lines.  Then we can just tweak it out.

- Ole
