On behalf of the ECF committers...thank you.
Wonderful that you want to contribute. As you indicated, ECF resources are limited, and so producing tutorial/usage description, experiences, etc is a terrific way to contribute.
This sounds great to me. I would suggest that we aim for putting the tutorial text in the ECF wiki alongside the other tutorials on the entry-point ECF wiki page: http://wiki.eclipse.org/ECF. As for the code for the 3 bundles...it would be possible to either 1) create/add a new repo at the ECF github site (http://github.com/ECF); 2) contribute the code to the EF repo (http://git.eclipse.org/c/ecf/org.eclipse.ecf.git/ e.g. in examples); or 3) Host the code somewhere else (e.g. your own github repo). It's your choice...which depends mostly on what you/your company are comfortable with disclosing publicly, and what license you wish to use for your tutorial code. I'm happy to discuss/detail these options with you further if you wish.
A couple of technical/design questions to consider: for the tutorial, do you intended to use declarative services (DS)? Also...with your focus on device configuration, do you also plan to use OSGi configuration admin or perhaps even the remote management APIs recently created ? If the answer is 'yes' or 'maybe', I would be happy to help with your use of any of these for the tutorial and/or your other development.
I think it sounds terrific. Thank you again...and inadvance...for your contribution.
