Feature request: produce OSGi bundle of Saxon HE
Dear Saxon HE developers
It would be great if the JAR distribution on search.maven.org were an OSGi bundle.
I would gladly produce a patch, if I knew where the current open source repository is located.
It is not maintained in SourceForge.net, that is for sure.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks for providing a great XML / XSLT library for Java.

As discussed in that thread 5 years ago, my primary concern here is testing and support. It's great that you're prepared to contribute the changes needed to the product, but I want to understand what we have to tell our users about how to take advantage of the new feature, and I want to know what tests we have to run to ensure that the changes to the product have the desired effect.
The (Subversion) repository for Saxon-HE is linked to from http://dev.saxonica.com. It only holds released versions and patches, not the version under development.

Hi Michael, here's an example showing how simple it is to make a JAR OSGi-ready:
Neither testing nor support I believe is a concern, as Saxon is already used since years in OSGi environments.
