Hi,

since Betelgeuse didn't actually commit the news item in November, 
here's my try. Slightly reworded the text, comments welcome. Otherwise I 
plan to commit this on Friday.

Thanks,
Vlastimil

Title: Pending Removal of Java support on ia64

Revision: 1
News-Item-Format: 1.0
Display-If-Keyword: ia64
Display-If-Installed: dev-java/java-config

Since the IA64 arch team does not have the resources to maintain Java support, we
have agreed that ia64 keywords will be dropped from Java packages, and the java USE
flag masked on ia64, unless more manpower becomes available.
If you are willing to help with the maintenance, please contact ia64@g.o.
If there is no interest, the removal of Java support well be done during the second
half of March 2011.

The removal is tracked in bug #345433.
