22 Exactly. So we agree; that is the reason the original post on the idea
23 to move everything external to gentoo core, is a very bad one. Java
24 exists and prospers on Gentoo, mostly in overlays. Formalizing that
25 (original) proposal will only serve to further enshrine the fact that
26 java on gentoo, get's little love and no java-centric developer will
27 every get close to the "core" or gentoo.
30 I'm using java as an example; the science herd and the clustering herd
31 (projects if you like) are in the same boat. I do appreciate your candid
32 and clear responses.
