Jean-Baptiste Onofré commented on KARAF-56:

>From an user point of view, I think that the features plugin usage is quite "disturbing".

I propose to provide a new maven plugin looking like:
  distribution:create to create a custom distribution
  distribution:brand to create a branding bundle

> Question:
> How to create custom karaf distribution?
> Answer from Gert Vanthienen:
> "The easiest way to do this is by creating a features descriptor that
> contains a list of all the bundles you need for your application.  You
> can then use the features-maven-plugin add-features-to-repo goal to
> copy all the required bundles into a folder.  Once that is done, you
> can use the Maven assembly plugin to package everything up.
> You can find examples on how to use this in
> http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/servicemix/smx4/nmr/trunk/assembly/ and
> http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/servicemix/smx4/features/trunk/assembly/.
>  Looking at the pom files myself now, I guess we really want to put
> some effort in making this a little bit easier (either by documenting
> it properly or by providing a Maven archetype or plugin) -- could you
> raise a JIRA issue for this?"
