True, but my concern was that the current blackdown packages seem to be
named j2re1.3 and j2sdk1.3, and I'd personally be happier if the virtual
package doesn't appear tied to a specific JVM package (whether or not it
actually is, and the other proposed virtual package j2re1.3 would be
absolutely tied to this JVM package). I prefer a nice generic name like
www-browser, java2-runtime, etc.
Virtual package java2-runtime is fine with me. I'm even happy with
provides: java-virtual-machine, java2-runtime since the former says "I do
java" and the latter is more designed to specify a version of the core
Any other contributers to this discussion?
May I also ask what the impending blackdown packages in non-free will be
called? Will they still be j2re1.3 and j2sdk1.3?
Thanks - Ben.
