Re: [tycho-user] m2e PDE extension and Tycho

Thanks Christoph for enabling (finally) Eclipse developers to consume
Maven libs without hassle. Once this is rounded up, it will finally be
possible to develop Eclipse apps similar to other Maven or Gradle
projects without the "convert JAR to OSGi somehow -> put into a p2
update site -> update your target platform" circle.

Does this already resolve dependencies of the Maven artifacts? So far
I'm using the bnd plug-in in Gradle which will automatically pull also
dependencies of the referred library. I described that here:

Best regards, Lars
