Board Report (2010-12)
Community User Nick Wilson offered to contribute an implementation of the Monitor Admin service specification to Felix. The community voted to accept this contribution. At this point, we are awaiting paperwork to proceed to IP clearance. Carsten, Felix and Marcel were amongst the speakers in the Felix/OSGi track at ApacheCon, where there were a lot of OSGi related talks, even outside of this track.

Licensing and other issues * Regarding the issue raised in last board report of how to handle provisional OSGi API in Felix bundles, we have decided for now that the best approach is to avoid it and use our own parallel API structure or subclassing where appropriate. Our provisional OSGi API policy is documented at http://felix.apache.org/site/provisional-osgi-api-policy.html in our developer documentation.
