The plugins are built by the org.apache.felix project's
maven-bundle-plugin.  The doc for how this plugin works is here:
(Darn - apache.org is down, so I can't confirm these urls, but here they
are anyway)
http://felix.apache.org/site/apache-felix-maven-bundle-plugin-bnd.html 
(type org.apache.felix maven bundle    into google)

What is supposed to happen is that the "instructions" in the maven
configuration create the manifest.

If this isn't happening, then something's amiss with this process.

I'll attempt to rebuild this and see what happens.
