Please use the OSGi metadata from experimental (there is an error in the

Secondly, do you have any idea how compatible the API is between
lucene2 and lucene3? Eclipse currently uses lucene2, but if the API is
compatible, we can look at convincing eclipse (and other packages) to
use lucene3 instead.
Finally, Eclipse is unreasonably picky about this (#587657) so it breaks
everytime the Bundle-SymbolicName or Bundle-Version is touched.
This means that if/when eclipse migrates to lucene3, we (= the eclipse
maintainers) would like a heads-up before new versions of lucene3 is
