libjetty8-java-doc already recommends default-jdk-doc, maybe you meant "suggested" instead?
I may have used the wrong terms here, sorry. What I find questionable is that, as I said in my original report, if I try to install libjetty8-java-doc, APT by default says it will install other Javadoc packages as well, for a total of almost 300MB of data... I don't think these dependency Javadoc packages are actually needed for me to read the Jetty 8 documentation. They might be "useful" in some cases, but nothing more.
I just learnt I can use --no-install-recommends apt-get parameter (I expect aptitude to have something similar) to filter out recommended packages, but that's not what I would expect by default.
This is just my opinion. Thanks for your feedback! Mauro __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>. Please use debian-j...@lists.debian.org for discussions and questions.
