Subject [all] Re: [jira] Created: (MATH-275) MANIFEST.MF contains incorrect "Import-Package" OSGi header (makes it unusable for OSGi)
Date Sat, 06 Jun 2009 12:37:45 GMT
Can one of our OSGI experts pls look into this?   If what the reporter 
is saying is correct, all of our jars built using m2 are similarly

include the packages defined in the bundle (i.e. all the org.apache.commons packages). I suspect
it shouldn't include the package either as I can't see
that math has a dependency on that (I could be wrong :-) ).
