I am in the middle of re-organising this page and this is a rather
long email explaining my intentions.
I'm going to re-org the current java-software page into "themes",
ie: classpath, gcj, kaffe, japhar, jmk, javadeps, etc...
ie: Kawa (Scheme)
ie: GNUJSP, GNU-Paperclips, HTMLParser etc...
- Java Packages
The "Java Packages" section will be documentation of the current gnu.
name space. I would like to subdivide that as well, or perhaps
interleave the packages into the various "themes" but that will
create a problem because many packages have multiple uses.
The current Java page will become a list of ongoing Java projects but
will continue to include the existing political statements. It will be
linked to from the new java-software page.

My ultimate goal is to re-org the GNU software list, to include the
Java applications (ie: gcj, kaffe, etc...) in the software list itself
and to have a seperate page purely for documenting GNU Java packages.
Then to add a web front end to subversions and provide some editorial
system for GNU to accept contributions to the project.
I've been thinking that a general GNU Java discussion list might be
usefull... but that is a job for later.
If anybody has any thoughts or opionions on this please let me know.
I'm anxious to keep everybody on side.
