Subject: [gentoo-java] Wanted: Substantial Java Webapps

Hi gang,

there's been talk for some time now about improving the way we handle
Java webapps in Gentoo. The debate has mostly focused on
developer-specific wishes that come from developers of webapps on Gentoo

One aspect which has not been discussed any much detail is which web
applications we should package for end-users/sysadmins that are only
interested in running webapps on Gentoo Linux which incidentally happen
to be written in Java. For Python/PHP/Perl, there're things like Trac,
IssueTracker, Bugzilla, PHPNuke, Zope, and whatnot under www-apps,
currenly maintained by the web-apps herd.

I would very much welcome suggestions for a good, long list of
substantial, useful and interesting webapps written in Java, that we
some day should end up packaging.

PS. We'll not commit to actually packaging anything at this point, but I
hope to get some feedback and the ball rolling.
