Hi folks,

Apologies if this is pushing things faster than the SBo Admins wish to
go, you are welcome to leave this hanging in the air for as long as it

(1) How are we handling Java?  Maybe 'This requires the Oracle JRE or
JDK or OpenJDK' in the README (as appropriate), on the assumption that
Slackware 14's documentation will describe what to do?  <troll
mode="semi_serious"> or I'd be happy to drop all the Java stuff from
the repo, it's what Oracle deserves </troll>

(2) Where the SlackBuild needs to be changed, are we bumping BUILD, or
are we resetting it back to 1 for the new release?

(3) People seem to be emailing changes in lots of different formats,
what's the *preferred* format?  Submission form compliant tarball?
Patch?  Git?

Or should we all just ease off and chill and wait for guidance?
