There is a duplicate status. If you see a duplicate feel free to comment on
one of the two so we can mark one as duplicate.

What would be the reason to first go for 0.9? I would prefer a 1.0RC first

I am fine with a 1.0RC, but from a procedural point of view I would like to
make it 1.0 without the suffix. The reason being.. That if we do go from
1.0RC to 1.0 it is a new release and we do need to do a new vote etc. For
the previous release the vote was somewhat troublesome, since there have to
be enough votes etc.

If we do want to make an actual 1.0rc vote, we do need to accept that there
will be a vote shortly after that release for a 1.0 release.

I think to do this it should be possible to build bundles without building

This is more or less already possible. When a certain module is enabled all
required dependencies are also enabled. So for example building Remote
Services also enables the Framework.
The split isn't on bundle level, but more on a deployment level, ie Remote
Services is one module and has multiple bundles.

When looking at OSGi and modularity, I'd like to see a separate release for
each bundle. This makes sense, since each bundle has an own version etc.
This doesn't necessarily mean that subprojects should be in another trunk,
but there ha been some discussion in the past for other OSGi projects where
Marcel is also involved in. So maybe he can provide some insight in the
best way to solve this...
