Re: [equinox-dev] Why do we need

Renaming to a was a problem at one time.

There was an issue in locating that because there were other such files
on the classpath... can't remember the exact cause, but I remember that we had the
problem because the system bundle was loaded by a JRE-provided classloader,
not a bundle classloader...

I don't know if it is still an issue.

Is it that you want to delete the file or rename it to  Seems like the file is actually required as it has lots of exports etc.  If you delete it then the adaptor would have to supply all that info.  I think the model was that the combined with the relevant adaptor.mfs gives the logical for the system bundle.  Having an actual for the system bundle might be confusing.

It enables the OSGi framework to be started outside of Eclipse without the
user having to provide their own system bundle manifest, which is just one
less step in getting started.
