Re: Jessie release notes for the Java packages
Sounds good to me. I think it would be good to mention gradle even though its
old, just to start getting the word out that its in Debian.
You could also mention the packages the derive from androidsdk-tools:
Looks like we'll have two Google Summer of Code students working full time on
getting more Android stuff into Debian, so I think its worth mentioning that
some stuff is already included.
