Fernando for example is part of the jpackage commiters. He can get fixes
upstream fast (as long as they're actual fixes, not quick hacks that break
other java packages).
The number of jpackage commiters is small, they trust each other, you
don't have the long Fedora procedures designed to get occasional packagers
in line. Fedora won't have to wait for JPP, most often JPP will have to
wait for changes to propagate @fedora
But we have a problem in that the jpackage maintainers and the Fedora
maintainers won't always be the same. There may be some Fedora
maintainers that aren't interested in participating in jpackage at all.
If FESCo mandated that all java packages have to go through jpackage
before entering Fedora that might address this issue. Is that what we
want to propose?
