Sorry, i don't use Eclipse (yet) so i am not much help.

Why does it need the activation.jar to be included in our plugin?

Does Eclipse enable users to install additional supporting jars
that are then available to plugins.

How do other Eclipse plugins cope with this?

If any site can re-distribute it then Maven would be already.
I mean, is it only the need for a license click-through that
prevents it?

Perhaps. I presume that other ASF projects already have stumbled

Still, perhaps it is worth trying again if we cannot find another
