I, for one, don't want two OSGi plugins for maven in Felix. The goal for 
me is to have one plugin, maven-bundle-plugin, and eliminate the other. 
If your concern is that the JIRA component name doesn't match 
"maven-bundle-plugin", then we can probably edit the name, but I don't 
see a reason to have two JIRA components when there is only one path 
forward as far as I am concerned. Others may disagree.

See above.

Yes, I have posted messages saying that I would try to do this, but 
clearly I am not the only one that is capable of doing this, so I 
welcome any help in this area.

I am not sure that a "fresh start" is necessary. Some people are paid to 
do this work and some of people volunteer to do this work. We tend to 
try to be flexible with the demands in other peoples' schedules around 
here, since we don't know which category they fall into.

But thank you for your suggestions of how we committers should spend our
