severity 732959 wishlist

Hi Crowbar,

Thank you for your interest.  I am reassigning the severity of this bug
to wishlist, as that is the severity used for new version requests, and
merging it with duplicate bugs requesting the same.

New versions of Eclipse, Netbeans, etc. can be very time-consuming to
package because every build and runtime dependency must also be packaged
and built from source.  This can produce a cascading effect, because not
all build-deps of the build-deps are already packaged, and so on.

If you would like to help get Eclipse updated, the Java Team would be
happy to have you join us.  Most coordination occurs on the debian-java
list (
