RFS: java-common (renames default-jdk-builddep to gcj-native-helper)


As per thread [1] from April, default-jdk-builddep will be renamed to gcj-native-helper. For backwards compatibility gcj-native-helper will provide default-jdk-builddep /and/ depend on default-jdk until we have removed all references to default-jdk-builddep in the archive. I have taken the liberty of updating the policy to replace default-jdk-builddep with gcj-native-helper (see [2] for the actual changes).

Here is the latest changelog entry:
java-common (0.37) unstable; urgency=low

  * Updated and synced the Java FAQ.
    - contains a example of how to link with system javadocs.
    (Closes: #577164)
  * Renamed default-jdk-builddep to gcj-native-helper.
  * Removed useless install files and moved the override files
    to a location where dh_lintian finds them.
  * Removed some unused overrides.
  * Updated current list of maintainers in d/copyright
    (based on current list of Uploaders).

The changes are available on the pkg-java SVN or on mentors via dget:

  dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/j/java-common/java-common_0.37.dsc

If you checkout from the pkg-java SVN you can see the changes via:

  svn diff -r12176:HEAD

Since the Java FAQ takes up quite a bit of the diff you may want to use something like:

  svn diff -r12176:HEAD -- debian/ policy.xml

Similarly the FAQ changes can be reviewed with:

  svn diff -r12176:HEAD -- debian-java-faq/

Thank you in advance,
