I'll try, although the PDE tooling isn't that great [1, 2]. IMHO, bnd is
far better at automatically identifying uses constraints (although you
can still cheat it by using reflection), but most Eclipse projects use
Tycho and manifest-first builds, so I guess that's what the Wiki page
should focus on.
FYI, if you don't mind (and the OCL Oomph setup is up-to-date) I may use
OCL as a running example.

I agree, reports would be great. I am not aware of any tooling for this,
though. The maven-bundle-plugin focuses on *generating* MANIFEST.MFs
with uses constraints rather than checking the uses constraints of
existing MANIFEST.MFs. Also, I don't think PDE has a tool that could
easily be turned in a manifest checker. :-(
