I agree.  The kind of duplication we have (had) with the libstdc++ and
java pages has caused inconsistencies in the past, and we should continue
to reduce these.

Definitely! This is some part where the GCJ rules and guidelines are
better than what we have (documented) for the rest of GCC.

It would be great could one of the Java folks work on merging (all or
at least parts of) java/contrib.html into our main instructions.

Also, could we move java/projects.html to projects/java.html and add
a link from java/index.html to the Java projects page?

(Patches for both changes are pre-approved.)
