Hi Neal,

I heard about the difficulties of some Java packages recently and,
although I haven't contributed to a Linux distribution in a long time,
I decided to help somehow and joined some Fedora mailing lists and am
trying to get my head around
I initially offered help to maintain the Maven packages that are being
orphaned, Now it seems this
conversation is more complicated but I haven't given up just yet.

Hope I can make some progress until the end of the month.

Thanks for waking us up!
