Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Galileo Must-do's

Regarding ICU4J - for those projects that do adopt it: Please make
sure you use Import-Package rather than Require-Bundle so that clients
can use the replacement JAR (0.17MB vs. 4MB for the full ICU4J) that
the Platform makes available on their download pages (look for
" binary"). This is of interest to standalone or RCP
applications that don't rely on the improved
Unicode/internationalization/globalization support of ICU4J.
