Subject Re: Geronimo specs jars in OSGi

Sorry.  This is for David's idea:

"I also wonder if there is a way to generalize the osgi method so it  
might work in some non-osgi environments."

Another reason to wrap the spec jar in a bundle is that we won't be  
seen as extending the spec, something that is explicitly prohibited in  
the licensing of the JSRs.


Regards,
Alan
