Yes ... and now that you mentioned it ... The page you mentioned above
is a great start, but only covers package-naming and versioning
policies. In fact, the page above seems more like a guide for
repackaging JPackage RPMs so that they compile with gcj (understandable
since that's what was important to RedHat/Fedora). It doesn't mention
anything regarding 1) Fedora's stance on Java packaging, 2) Fedora's
relationship with JPackage, or 3) Fedora's guidelines for Java
packaging.

I think we'll find that as subsystems grow, Fedora has to have
subbranches in its guidelines that people can look to. Even if it means
deferring to another organization's rules (ie. perl, python, mono and
jpackage).

I mentioned multi-arch before because even if these are "noarch",
they're still an arch in and of itself (ie. java bytecode vs. x86_64
gcj).
