Package: java-common
Version: 0.26
Severity: wishlist


in section 2.4 "Java libraries" it should be specified that packages
containing such libraries should belong to the 'libs' section and not
to the 'devel' section.

As Java libraries, to the difference of C libraries, are at 
the same time for runtime and development usage, they could be in both,
but as 85% of them are already in this section, it makes more sense to
make it consistent this way. Also, a java developer should know this,
where a java user might not expect libraries to be in devel.
