> We should model our artifact view more after that of Bndtools and have a tree view that
shows BSNs at the top level and versions beneath. This has a couple of benefits:
> a) It creates a better overview of the bundles and their versions than a flat list can
ever give.
> b) It allows us to implement a more elegant solution for our dynamic vs static associations.
> That last aspect should probably be explained a bit more. We have either static or dynamic
associations between artifacts and features. Static means, you link to exactly the BSN+version
that you select. Dynamic means it will always link to the highest version of that BSN. By
dragging a feature onto a BSN we can now always create a dynamic link, and by dragging it
onto a specific version we can make it static. That not only simplifies the interaction, it
also gives better feedback as you can now see what links are dynamic and which ones are not.
