Thanks Bertrand,

good points - yes with switching to the feature model we will still have these. And I think we already have nearly everything in place for 3)

IMO the Starter has three purposes:

1) Provide a quick way to experiment with Sling
2) Be a living example of how to assemble your own variant of Sling
with just what you need
3) Run the sling-org-apache-sling-launchpad-testing integration tests

About 3), we're now adding integration tests in or closer to the
modules that they test and that's good.

However, those "old" integration tests are very important in testing
backwards compatibility so I think they need to continue to run and it
must be easy for us to inject the latest versions of all modules in

As long as these 3 purposes are satisfied I'm fine and nowadays I
think 2) is more important than 1), so moving to the feature model
makes sense.
