Subject: [gentoo-dev] [java-utils-2.eclass] - removal of java-pkg_ensure-test and java-pkg_ensure-gcj
Date: Mon, 04 Jun 2012 11:44:36
Message-Id: 20120604134304.7684d1fe@sera-17.lan
Both java-pkg_ensure-test and java-pkg_ensure-gcj will be removed from
java-utils-2.eclass after the 4 of July 2012. See attached patch.

java-pkg_ensure-test: [1]

Was used to enforce USE=test if FEATURES=test. For quite some time this
is handled by package managers. Relies on the env var FEATURES [2].
There are no known consumers any more.

Solution: Remove the call to java-pkg_ensure-test and rely on the
package manager handling this.


java-pkg_ensure-gcj:

Uses built_with_use [3] and ebeep [4] and is no longer needed with EAPI
2 or later. There are no known consumers for quite some time.

Solution: Migrate to EAPI 2 or later and depend on sys-devel/gcc[gcj]
instead.
