Add the ProviderType annotation to public API so that semantic version recommendations on additions to ServiceBuilder services are treated as MINOR changes rather than MAJOR

    Details

      Description

      This is a Class level annotation (no runtime dependency) which allows semantic versioning tool to distinguish a Provider API from Consumer APIs (non annotation are assumed Consumer).

      Additions to Provider APIs are not considered MAJOR changes since only a few providers implement the API while the vast majority only use the API.

      See http://www.osgi.org/wiki/uploads/Links/SemanticVersioning.pdf for more details.
