Late to this thread myself, but we have around 30-40 git repositories 
each being a separate OSGi bundle, built with Apache Maven, sharing a 
common parent containing a common/base maven-bundle-plugin and 
karaf-feature configuration ( which we're moving to the maven-tiles 
plugin (http://repaint.io - documentation coming) for better composition 

We make heavy use of maven version ranges and semantic versioning, we 
also separate out all our API/interface bundles to their own git 
repositories/bundles, so that dependencies only bind to APIs and not 

We ALWAYS use a range of say `[1.0.0,2.0.0)` - exclusive of the upper 
range, and NEVER release a `.0` version number ( avoids picking up 

We also make use of the StickyCode bounds-plugin to automatically update 
the lower range to latest release.
