I am developing several bundles that can be executed in any OSGi container for stuff . I would like to set GNU/GPL V3 to my source code (available here ). My question is: can I distribute my set of bundles plus the necessary Equinox bundles (in a .zip) as a complete application (that is, my bundles and the org.eclipse.equinox, ds, configuration manager... bundles) or is there any incompatibility with the licenses?
Apparently the Eclipse Licence and GPL/V3 does not allow to mix their code. However, in my case, no code is mixed (that is, I do not use org.eclipse.* packages in my code, for example). My bundles are independent of the OSGi environment (can also be executed in Apache Felix).
In  the FSF says that with Eclipse Plug-ins the licenses are incompatible, but we are talking now about OSGi bundles, where code is not mixed (Equinox includes bundles with Apache License, for example).
So, can I distribute a .zip with my bundles (GPLV3) together with a set of Equinox bundles?
