Feel free to ignore anything I say.  I don't have a real need for the project 
and just hang out here because I liked the "other" usability enhancements Eric 
threw into his rebuild (a working rpm-managed java back when Red Hat made that 
very difficult, webmin, acrobat reader, etc.) and it is sometime fun to answer 
sysadmin type questions from teachers.

But, I don't see how any amount of contribution toward the fedora packaging 
effort could have changed the way things ended up.  And in retrospect I see why 
the original version had to be a respin built to just come up working.   Eric is 
a tough act to follow.
