Equinox is not part
of Runtime (RT). The Eclipse top-level project handles Equinox CQs and
we do understand the CQs.

The intent is to have the PMC decide
whether or not the CQ makes technical sense. Specifically, the IP Team
depends on the PMC to confirm that the requested dependency is indeed,
for example, a prerequisite (and not, say, a works with). The EMO and IP
Team are not generally able to make that assessment.
I can see the intent but I question if
the PMC is the appropriate gatekeeper to decide if a CQ is filed correctly.
Perhaps it is different for each PMC but from the Runtime perspective,
I wouldn't expect anyone on Equinox to take the time to understand how
any given CQ would relate to Jetty, at least to the level where they
would diagnose that sort of nuance.
