Everyonce in a while people contact us wanting to help out. Well here is
task for people wanting to help out. We want to make as many packages
depend on just ant-core when possible. I have created a metabug for
this: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110337. So basically it
involves testing packages by making them depend only on
dev-java/ant-core instead of dev-java/ant and reporting this to the bug.
You should also disable LOCALCLASSPATH in /usr/bin/ant to avoid the ant
wrapper script putting installed packages like xerces to CLASSPATH. You
can also test by using equery depends virtual/jre && equery depends
virtual/jdk to clean out all java packages and to start from a clean table.
