Bug#558179: missing OSGi metadata

Package: libcommons-codec-java
Version: 1.4-1
Severity: normal
User: pkg-java-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: missing-osgi-metadata


We are trying to make eclipse build from source using the jars from
Debian packages instead of the ones shipped together with eclipse;
however eclipse needs some OSGi metadata in the manifest file of the
jar files.

We believe that this package ships following jar files without this
OSGi-metadata (See [1] for more info):


It may be helpful to see how Fedora has done this; since they are
further than us in this aspect. We have provided the link to the
Fedora VCS repository [2]. Please be aware that the naming convention
differ on Fedora. (e.g. libcommons-el-java is called jakarta-commons-el
in Fedora).

Thank you in advance,
Debian Orbital Alignment Team
(The team packaging eclipse)
