BUG: sun-java6-source incorrectly Depends: sun-java6-jdk (>= 6-06-0ubuntu1)
 
Hi, I have a chroot which I install all my docs (and sources) into, so
as to not clutter my primary desktop installation.

I went to install sun-java6-source, about 20MB worth, and apt wanted to
pull in over 100MB of additional cruft - the whole jdk and all its
dependencies no less.

I consider this to be a bug.

Regards
Zenaan

Otoh, since you can't actually _do_ anything with the source without a JDK,
the packagers consider it a requirement.

It's _just_ a great big jar file. If you don't want the Ubuntu package,
download the jar.
