Re: [equinox-dev] scr, cm, and metatype

Equinox metatype implementation continues to be the reference implementation for OSGi and implements the very latest released specification.

I did update the CM implementation to be CM spec version 1.5 a long time ago (3 years?).  OSGi R6 did not update the CM spec, if I recall correctly. The spec doc for OSGi R6 still lists CM spec at version 1.5.  So from my perspective both of the CM and metatype Equinox impls are current with R6.

As per bug [1], Equinox and Eclipse are moving to use Felix SCR v2.0.8
for Oxygen.

My understanding is that the Equinox ConfigAdmin and Metatype
implementations are rather old now...and don't support OSGi R6 versions
of those services.

Would it be possible to add Apache Felix of ConfigAdmin and
Metatype...versions that are at least R6 compatible...to Orbit?

The reason I ask is that a number of projects (e.g. ECF, Kura, Karaf,
others)...and our/their consumers...use DS+ConfigAdmin+Metatype all
three together, and having the Equinox versions of these services be so
old is a problem for them (especially since the spec enhancements over
last few years have been very significant.

Or, perhaps the right answer is to update these Equinox impls? Not sure.
