1 Last rites for www-servers/jetty
3 Java Gen 1 ebuild, needs to be migrated and bumped to latest stable
4 version. Binary ebuild that has many open bugs and is outdated. Not to
5 mention some recent security issues. No maintainer or anyone interested
6 in maintaining it.
8 Work on bumping it to the latest version, and unbundling packaged deps
9 was underway in java-experimental overlay. Long ago, there is a
10 contributor looking to package it, and work there MIGHT be committed to
11 java-experimental overlay.
13 Unless their is a compelling reason to keep in tree, it's going to be
14 removed in 30 days. It will be moved the java junkyard overlay. In case
15 someone still needs it.
