Where should questions about the Java guidelines be directed?* This list?* The wiki page?
I'm curious about two points.* First, rpmlint can either complain that jars are indexed, or complain that they are not indexed.* In the default Fedora configuration, it complains if they are indexed.* Why?* Is there some supported JVM on some supported Fedora release that cannot handle indexed JARs?* I don't see anything about this in the JPackage guidelines, nor in the Fedora guidelines.
Second, I have a question about the use of Class-Path in JAR manifests.* The JPackage guidelines say nothing about it.* The Fedora guidelines only give a sed command to remove Class-Path entries, but do not discuss why they should be removed.* Rpmlint says, "These entries do not work with older Java versions and even if they do work, they are inflexible and usually cause nasty surprises."* What older Java versions?* Any that we care about?* In what way are they inflexible?* What nasty surprises have been encountered?
