I don't like that approach which leaves
us with maintaining and shipping the same thing twice. Let's continue the
discussion in the bug report.

from Equinox Sent by:
I think it's possible for PDE to ship their own jar of
the code. You can simply copy the sources from Equinox. I think you still
need a CQ, though. It can be a re-use CQ for a subset of the original CQ.
Might be easier to jut go with a full re-use.
I've cc'ed equinox-dev because I think this topic may
be interesting for them, too.
in order to improve user experience with DS Annotations, I need to contribute
package org.osgi.service.component.annotations to PDE projects' classpath
This package is already part of Equinox's org.eclipse.osgi.services bundle;
however, in order to make these annotations available to external builders,
they would need to be in a separate jar (otherwise users would have to
place the entire bundle on the build path).
Would it be OK to extract that package from Equinox and provide it via
PDE as a separate JAR? Since this isn't new code contribution, do I need
any special permissions/process? Thanks!
