The tutorials are still a work in progress. I think you can attach files 
to the wiki, so please feel free to do so. We will likely set up a maven 
project file for them, since this will handle dependencies and allow us 
to use our bundle plugin.

Please point out any errors.

Regarding the Service Tracker dependency, it was not included in the 
0.8.0 release but it is now included in felix.jar (a.k.a. main.jar) and 
in framework.jar...the source is not visible in the project because it 
is not there, only the binary package is pulled into the JAR file at 
packaging time using our maven bundle plugin.

However, for the 1.0 release, the source will actually be included in 
the framework project temporarily since we don't want to make a release 
for the OSGi compendium bundle just yet, since it has additional 
dependencies. In the next release of framework, I would expect for the 
ST code to be removed again, but the classes will still be in the 
resulting JAR file.
