Trying to determine base, and target versions for natty is surprisingly
difficult. As we discussed, Java upstreams usually use a tarball like
dependency method to satisfy their requirements. We have *no* chance of
changing the whole Java ecosystem to better suite distribution, although
perhaps having influence on some. This means that some projects which
we rely upon tracking the development version, the upstream project
likely doesn't know exactly what dependencies they need.
However, in order to have a plan of what java dependencies we should be
providing for Natty; we still need an enriched governance model.
JamesPage is, AIUI, proposing a stricter requirement on requiring a post
DIF exception for Java libraries (perhaps main only?), which seems to
make best sense IMO.
