What does it tell? To me, it says that FOSS platforms don't care
Java as much as they used to. We're clearly able to do stuff with Go
and Rust, which are just as "anti-distribution" as Java is (based on
what other people say).
Go and Rust have the advantage that the build system is included in
the language, so packagers don't have to attempt to package x
different build systems (and because they are included, they also
don't tend to have an expanding with time dependency list).
