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 (?)

Bouncycastle is me (it is a dep of jgit). From reading the javamail "compat" document: it looks like I probably will need to take no action at all.
