@avalos Meh, java isn't open source anymore. Maven was the final nail in the coffin there. It's admirable that they're trying, though.
@avalos OpenJDK is sort of open source, though they keep forcing binary versions that can't be compiled with previous versions yet they compiled somehow. That sort of bootstrapping problem might be unavoidable, but shouldn't happen repeatedly. What is avoidable is the fact that maven does nothing but download binaries and use them, and there is no way to get it to compile any source. So it's just... binaries and vague claims that we maybe compiled it from this source.
