This offers all the libs available in games:libs at any time and reduces the

This is definitively a good idea. I will do it this way afterwards if
there are no objections.

Thanks.. I ithink it's a step in the right direction

games:libs being built against the JAVA repositories, as I think there will
be more games coming with potential Java requirements (I was looking a bit
into Slam Soccer).
The Java remain, as is, built against the openSUSE_xx.x repositories.

However, I'm not quite sure about this. As far as I know Java packaging
makes wrinkles on packagers' foreheads and I would like to hear more
comments on this from games:* maintainers and maybe some Java packagers,
before we build games:libs against Java repos.

Well: not everybody will have to package something in Java. But having the libs
built against java (and thus having java available for packaging) allows some
packagers to use it (and no worries about my wrinkles: they are deep and many).

I have more the 'end user' in mind in this case than the packagers.
