News item: Dropping Java support on ia64 (retry)
 
Hi,

since Betelgeuse didn't actually commit the news item in November,
here's my try. Slightly reworded the text, comments welcome. Otherwise I
plan to commit this on Friday.


Thanks,
Vlastimil

Revision: 1
News-Item-Format: 1.0
Display-If-Keyword: ia64
Display-If-Installed: dev-java/java-config

Since the IA64 arch team does not have the resources to maintain Java support, we
have agreed that ia64 keywords will be dropped from Java packages, and the java USE
flag masked on ia64, unless more manpower becomes available.
If you are willing to help with the maintenance, please contact ia64@gentoo.org.
If there is no interest, the removal of Java support well be done during the second
half of March 2011.

The removal is tracked in bug #345433.

The sentence

"If there is no interest, the removal of Java support well be done
during the second half of March 2011."

seems to have some bugs.

I suppose "well be done" was meant to be "will be done"?
^
But maybe "the removal [..] will be done" could use re-writing, too.
How about this:

"If there is no interest, Java support will be removed
from IA64 during the second half of March 2011."

Best,



Sebastian
