I use this command to check for dependent packages:
$ dnf --repo rawhide --repo rawhide-source --releasever rawhide
repoquery --whatrequires javamail
Which is enough, since there are no other subpackages except -javadoc.
The command yielded (on July 1):
So the list of affected packages seems to be:
- ant (Stewardship / Java SIG will deal with this)
- bouncycastle (?)
Bouncycastle is me (it is a dep of jgit). From reading the javamail
"compat" document: https://javaee.github.io/javamail/docs/COMPAT.txt
looks like I probably will need to take no action at all.
