Rorschach has asked me to bring the discussion at
to this mailing list.
Please help us find a consensus.
My answer to his last question is:
Let them install openjdk6 to provide the j2sdk dependency.
It's not the Arch philosophy to cut on freedom of choice.
By forcing a user to use either a free or proprietary alternative
of a PROVIDES we ignore the purpose of this clause (i.e.
providing freedom of choice).
Moreover I don't really see what's controversial here.
I'm a free software supporter myself, but I don't like
forcing people to use it.
provides=j2sdk is the way that will hurt no party.
