Java Package Maintainers SIG

This is the tracking project for the Java / Java Package Maintainers SIG.

NOTE: The page for the Java SIG on the fedoraproject Wiki is still outdated. Some of the valid information will probably be moved here.

Mailing List

The old java-devel mailing list will continue to get used for general Java development on fedora, and the java-maint-sig list is associated with BugZilla and can be used for conversations internal to the SIG.
