BND is an important tool and a common build-dependency for many Java packages. It helps to create and diagnose OSGi bundles. As of June 2015 the current version of BND in the archive is still 1.50 but the latest upstream release is 2.4.1. The Java team plans to migrate to this newer version but this requires a transition.

The Plan

Create a bnd2 source package that is based on version 2.1.0 of bnd which is already in Debian experimental and switch all r-deps to use bnd2 as the new build-dependency. Request removal of bnd as soon as the transition is complete. This should ensure a smooth upgrade without disruptions.


Transition completed on 2015/11/21.
