Subject Re: Add a scope feature-url
Date Fri, 25 May 2012 07:17:49 GMT
I looked into the feature commands a little deeper and I think I can do 
more than just changing the scope.

See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1502

I already did some of the implementation and I think it looks much 
better than what we have now.
