We simplified our former guidelines to include *just* the real rules
without going into details about tools and techniques used to adhere to
these rules (because these evolve faster than guidelines can).

We then wrote a separate document (as Mikolaj mentioned) which contains
HOWTO. We are still improving it since it's not finished, but needless
to say, there's no better person to write the docs than people actually
using the tools. Petr can clean it up/unify of course but I don't think
it's fair to assume he has time write docs for all different languages.

So that's why "java and not other languages"
