Subject RE: Shared bundle repository

Hmmm. You're right - this might be tricky territory; particularly as Charles mentioned concerning
bundling of non-Apache-Licensed bundles. The common-ground project would need create/distribute
bundles under a selection of licenses. Still, there's got to be a way!

Perhaps the best home for this might be as a sub-project of the Karaf or Felix project? This
would keep the repository tied to a neutral ground. As I think about it, Karaf might be best,
as the resulting bundles would work with Felix or Equinox or whatever OSGi distribution is
being used.

Yeah, I wasn't suggesting a subproject of SMX or Geronimo.  I think
there are other projects like Ace, Sling, Aries that could contribute
to that too.  So definitely a common ground would be a good idea.
I'm not sure if the board would approve a project solely for releasing
third party libraries though ...
