I use this command to check for dependent packages:

$ dnf --repo rawhide --repo rawhide-source --releasever rawhide
repoquery --whatrequires javamail

Which is enough, since there are no other subpackages except -javadoc.
The command yielded (on July 1):


So the list of affected packages seems to be:

- ant (Stewardship / Java SIG will deal with this)
- bouncycastle (?)
- httpunit (?)
- log4j (Stewardship / Java SIG will deal with this)
- log4j12 (Stewardship / Java SIG will deal with this)
- openas2 (?)

I already had to adapt ant to use the "legacy" coordinates of
javamail, so those changes can be reverted once it's updated. I'm not
sure whether the other packages are similarly affected (I assume they
are, and will require some `%pom_change_dep` or sed magic).

I suggest notifying the maintainers of the three "(?)" packages directly.
