I looked a bit closer. I believe that this change of behaviour comes
down to these lines in felix-gogo-shell's pom.xml:
The expansion of * leads to this section in MANIFEST.MF:
Whereas the version published in debian does not have the version
range requirement for framework nor tracker.
So the behaviour of this * operator has been changed, but I couldn't
see exactly where this code in maven-bundle-plugin figures out what
the dependencies are and why it might now add the version= part.
(I'm also unclear why the added version range requirement causes the
eclipse build to fail, I may look at that angle next time)
This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team
debian-j...@lists.debian.org for discussions and questions.
