I think it is important to realize that this specific area of packaging
(Java components wholly built from source, in RPM format for Fedora) is
one where we desperately need qualified volunteers to step up and take
on these sorts of responsibilities.

I tip my hat to anyone who does so, as everytime I look in depth at such
Java packages, I feel my eyes start to bleed from the depths of
recursion involved.
