I agree with Stefano that we need to define some kind of process for  
bundle development and release. In the spirit of OSGi I think we  
should definitely not try to do "big bang" releases (releasing  
everything at once). Instead, each individual bundle (or group of  
bundles that provide some kind of feature), should be able to do  
releases separately.

What we need in my opinion is some kind of guideline about what we  
expect from a bundle before it is released. I'm thinking about  
developers voting, doing a code review, making sure there are tests  
and that these tests provide reasonable coverage. In short, a process  
not unlike incubation.

As for bundles that have not been released yet, we should definitely  
make sure that the code is either maintained and scheduled for  
eventual release, or simply put in some part of the repository where  
we can store examples, toy with ideas, proofs of concept, etc.

Greetings, Marcel
