Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-04 21:08:37 EDT
Any response to Rajeesh's commentary?  Any chance of getting this updated to our
current Java guidelines?  (No javadoc scriptlets, no jpp tag in the Release:, etc.)
Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-25 20:54:33 EDT
Well, no response in over six months, and no response to additional prompting
and needinfo.  I've no choice but to close the Java package reviews that Vivek
has opened.

If someone feels the urge to flame me, please instead expend the effort updating
these packages to current guidelines and reopening the tickets.
