1 Last rites for dev-java/blackdown-java3d-bin
3 There is no more blackdown upstream. It's been disbanded and project has
4 ended. There is nothing wrong with this package other than being binary.
5 At the same time no reason for it to remain. One has always had a choice
6 between blackdown-java3d-bin and sun-java3d-bin. The biggest difference
7 being the later is fetch restricted. The sun package will remain, and
8 users will no longer have a choice. Only two packages depend on an
9 implementation of java3d at this time.
11 All quite moot IMHO, thus masking and last riting.
13 Anyway unless their is a compelling reason to keep in tree, it's going
14 to be removed in 30 days. It will be moved the java junkyard overlay. In
15 case someone still needs it, or etc.
