I just called a vote. Sorry for the delay, but we just finished up the Felix framework 4.0

> This issue is created as part of the process outlined in the "Contributing Source Code"
Felix page as suggested by Richard Hall in issue FELIX-538[1].  The source code attached[6]
to this issue is an implementation of the OSGi HTTP Service specification version 1.2.  The
code is based on Richard's original server which is also referenced in FELIX-538, and the
remaining code was developed by me, with the exception of a few classes which were adapted
from existing Felix sources[2].
> Design constraints for this project were backwards compatibility, simplicity, and size.
 The code base consists of 23 Java files in 3 packages.  The source is divided into "osgi",
"server", and "servlet" packages according to the primary purpose of the class, and interfaces
are utilized to keep the three domains fairly isolated[3].  The minimal compiled jar which
does not include the servlet API or OSGi API currently is 41Kb, and the dependency-free jar
with all necessary APIs is 125Kb.  An Ant script is provided that will build the jars and
a CI server is also available for binary builds[4] and javadocs[5].
> In terms of features the server doesn't offer:
> -Authentication
> -Cookie support
> -Session support
> In addition several aspects of the Servlet implementation have not been tested including:
> -Multipart POST
> -PUT
> -Non-default character encodings
> And as of the submission several Servlet API methods are unimplemented in (all unimplemented
methods throw org.apache.felix.http.lightweight.servlet.UnimplementedAPIException):
> -HttpServletRequest(Impl)
> -HttpServletResponse(Impl)
> However the core functionality has been implemented and tested and the Felix Web Admin
application can be hosted with this HTTP Service implementation.
> I plan in continuing to use the service in personal and professional projects and would
be happy to continue to add unimplemented features and maintain the code base as a Felix committer.
> Thanks!
