Re: [orbit-dev] Why are org.eclipse.ogi-Bundles in the p2 orbit repository

I think this was the case years ago when OSGi did not always have the required libraries available for us to compile against in maven central.  Now everything should be available in maven central to allow us to get off of compiling against org.eclipse.osgi stuff.

We build some content that depends on these (eg. apache-felix-scr), so
at least for certain parts of resolution, (ie. feature generation) they
need to be in the target platform. I'll have a look at if there's a
easy way to exclude them from the categories. They were never intended
to be consumed.
