Hello,

I just curious... How do you see the boostrap process for normal users?

You need jdk to setup icedtea... So we have somekind of loop...
Users who do not want non open source package to run on their computers should:

1. Install gcj
2. Install icedtea
3. Reinstall icedtea so it compiles with icedtea and drop gcj dependency???
4. Uninstall gcj

Portage do not support these sequences...

So we have several options:
1. Have users do this manually.
2. Create a script similar to crossdev that perform the sequence.
3. Add a private gcj build into the compile stage of icedtea, and drop
the jdk dependency.

Any thoughts?
Alon.
