Could the Don Quichottes that are objecting to peaceful jpp cooperation
provide documented examples when working with jpp has been harmful to
Fedora (aside from the "harm" of three letters in versions?)

Could we have more concrete arguments than it "isn't necessarily in the
Fedora community's long-term interests" ?

Do you realise the only reason we have a packaged FLOSS java stack today
(and not in two years) is it was bootstraped on closed jpp jvm packages ?

Is breaking ties with other entities for the sake of not having to think
about them in the Fedora community's long-term interest ?

/me is getting mad about all the FUDing on this issue.
