> This last paragraph is an accurate description of how we setup ACE. It is built out of
components that are assembled in different ways at runtime (using OSGi). The components themselves
embed enough metadata to ensure that (even without access to the sourcecode or documentation)
they can be assembled succesfully. Like other modular projects within Apache, it is setup
so we can easily release individual components.

And the idea is once you have a set of modules released for the first
time, you just release the module which you think is ready to go.
Picking up the analogy with Maven, the first Maven release required
not only the core but all plugins to be released (they did it
differently than ACE but that's not the point). Once Maven was out
with all its core plugins, just new plugins were released from time to
time, or existing one were updated etc.
