Since the new java-common come to the repo Is now possible have multiple
java, but this bring and open another issue, java naming scheme the guy in
jre/jdk[1] and jre-devel and jdk-devel refuse to follow a convention non
generic name and the other maintaining jre7/jdk7 [2] and
jre7-oracle/jdk7-oracle that do the same [3] refuse to accept or merge
jre7-oracle into jre7 for the same reason even if the jre-oracle was merged
into jre, this is a chaos.
Many packages doing the same in different verion having different name
conventions and ALL arguin bein correct.

There is need to a conventional standar name scheme or this will be worst,
instead to be kiss this is sick.
There is a name scheme or name convention to follow?

[1] https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/jdk/
[2] https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/jdk7/
[3] https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/jdk7-oracle/
There is also a jdk5-compat.
Also mergins as ben posponed until name convention come.
