Just to be clear, you should be grabbing
the *built* versions from Orbit not grabbing the source and rebuilding.
It is true that the build for these bundles is trivial but the principle
is that we consume these as though the library originator was producing
bundles. PDE build has facilities for defining a "base location"
that contains prebuilt pieces for you to build with. I suggest that
people add the Orbit bundles to that as they would the Eclipse platform

out of my project repository but grab the bundle source from the
That makes migration really simple.
