Default Even More Changes to the Packaging Guidelines

In a special session this week, the Fedora Packaging Committee has
gotten even more changes done.

Specifically:

New guidelines describing how to package Java software can be found
here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Java

*** This lifts the hold on Java Packages ***

New guidelines describing how to deal with GCJ compilation in Java
packages can be found here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/GCJGuidelines

New guidelines describing how to package Eclipse plugins can be found
here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/EclipsePlugins

New guidelines describing how to deal with SysV-style Initscripts can be
found here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SysVInitScript

The Fedora Package Naming Guidelines have been updated to reflect the
new guidelines for package naming (EclipsePlugins). For details, please see:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines

Also, the main Fedora Packaging Guidelines have been updated with links
to the new guidelines for specific package types (Java, EclipsePlugins), as
well as cleanups regarding Initscripts:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines

Last but not least, Scriptlet Snippets has been simplified to point to the
new SysVInitScript guidelines:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ScriptletSnippets

These guidelines (and changes) were approved by the Fedora Packaging
Committee (FPC) and ratified by FESCo.

Many thanks to Andrew Overholt, Ville Skyttä, Thomas Fitzsimmons, Nicolas
Mailhot, all of the other Java helpers I've forgotten, and all of the members
of the FPC and FESCo, for assisting in drafting, refining, and passing these
guidelines.

A reminder: The Fedora Packaging Guidelines are living documents! If you
find something missing, incorrect, or in need of revision, you can
suggest a draft change. The procedure for this is documented here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Committee#GuidelineChangeProcedure

Thanks,
