I'd like to draw some attention to my question about why to install the
versioned jars. Nicolas is trying to help me understand, but I'm either
correct in that they should just be dropped or too dumb so far to get it (in
which case I think it needs a real explanation in the guidelines):
Yes, I've struggled to understand the same decision in the JDK packages.
I wonder why the extra level of versioning is required:
$ ls -l /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-icedtea
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 2007-12-11 14:36
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-icedtea -> java-1.7.0-icedtea-18.104.22.168
Nicolas, do you know the rationale? To enable parallel-installation of
multiple versions of the same JDK, perhaps?
