Re: Enabling jaw (Java-atk-wrapper) by default ? (Bug#900912)
If enabled by default, please offer a reliable way for applications to disable it. We don't need it for JOSM, and we have been so impacted with jaw's problems in the past years that we will never want it enabled by default for us.

Well, I'm afraid that what will happen is that the people who will
test will simply find out that it just works for them (just like it
does already for them with openjdk-8) ; will we then conclude near the
release that it should be enabled by default for Buster, and then be hit
by the much wider exposition to jaw?
If on the contrary we enable it by default during the freeze, we will
have *way* more testing coverage, and thus be much more confident with
keeping it enabled by default in Buster if we don't see bug reports.

Just ftr: what was broken was the load of jaw in openjdk-11, jaw itself
seems to work in openjdk-8 for people needing it.
