Subject Re: repoAdmin.discoverResources() parameters

There really is no way to do this, since (if I understand correctly) you 
are trying to reverse the capability/requirement model.

Normally, you perform a query to find matching capabilities. From what I 
understand, you want to perform a query to find matching requirements.

A similar situation exists for fragments, since the host doesn't know 
about fragments and fragments have a dependency on the host. This was 
one of the reasons behind the not-fully-baked "extends" concept in OBR. 
The idea with extends is that you could find all bundles that "extend" 
another bundle. Still, to do this, you had to manually go through all 
bundles and check for "extends" requirements and then determine if it 
extended your target bundle. Not super great, but it works.

So, you'll likely have to do something similar here. Manually go through 
all bundles and determine which ones are importing your package.

An alternative, is to add a "IGB plugin" capability to each of your 
plugin's OBR resource description, which would contain the version as an 
attribute. Then you could easily query for all "IGB plugin" capabilities.
