During my recent native-compilation spree I mailed one of our internal
lists with the priorities I personally assign to my packages. Tom
Tromey pointed out that it'd be a good idea to make them public, so...
Note that my task is to maintain Tomcat and Ant, so anywhere I've
written "users" you should read it as "users of Tomcat and/or Ant".
And if a package isn't in one of these bands then it's not one of
BAND 1: used by all users, all of the time
ant jakarta-commons-beanutils jakarta-commons-collections
jakarta-commons-digester jakarta-commons-el jakarta-commons-logging
jakarta-commons-modeler mod_jk mx4j regexp tomcat5 xerces-j2
BAND 2: used by some users, some of the time
classpathx-jaf classpathx-mail gnu-crypto jakarta-commons-dbcp
jakarta-commons-validator oro struts11 ldapjdk log4j xalan-j2
BAND 3: maybe someone out there uses it...
antlr avalon-framework avalon-logkit bcel cryptix cryptix-asn1
gnu.getopt jakarta-commons-lang jakarta-commons-launcher
jakarta-taglibs-standard java_cup jdepend jlex junit puretls
As a concrete example of how the love gets dished out between them,
you might notice that all band 1 packages are nativified now, one or
two band 2 packages are nativified now (and I expect the number will
increase in FC5) and that no band 3 packages are nativified (and
it's likely to stay like that).
