Ok. I got the RI/TCK distro, but what "instructions" are you refering to??
Can't find anything.
java -jar org.osgi.impl.framework.eclipse.jar -console
gives the same result...

Sure. I can sympathize with this. What I can't sympathize with is the dominant
perception in the industry that http://www.eclipse.org/equinox is a link to
THE reference implementation.
I'm not a lawyer, so an honest question; Are we allowed to publish the RI
(under a new name?) with the target to make it as strict to the spec as
possible? I think there is value in that for many people.
