      Problem statement

      Consider plugins A and B.

      A has an optional dependency to B.

      B exposes an extension point called B.

      A contains an @Extension(optional=true) or an @OptionalExtension(requiresPlugins = "B") (when using the variant plugin)
      and has public class A extends B.

      • Set up a new Jenkins instance
      • Install plugin A
      • Install plugin B
      • Check groovy console ExtensionList.lookup(B.class)
      • An empty list is returned. Expected to see class A singleton.

      After restarting the Jenkins instance, class A singleton is listed properly.
