sarowe asked about this issue in
FWIW, i thought this issue (
LUCENE-3228) had been resolved a long time ago based on some comments i remember people making, but evidently those comments where on irc/mail and folks didn't post them in Jira.
Problems with the patch i attached (that i know of):
1) we don't distribute dev-tools in our releases, so at a minimum we'd need to find a new home for any package-list files we wanted to ship.
2) the Java documentation from Oracle has some licensing/restrictions that affect redistribution which don't seem to be compatible with ASF 3rd party licensing policy so we can't include the java package-list files in our releases
...we could still use the ideas in this patch to deal with package-list files for non java/oracle distrobutions, but at the time this patch was written the only other extneral javadocs we linked to where that might be useful was junit, and since this patch was created, that link has just been removed outright from our build.xml files.
I don't think there's anything left here but to resolve as Won't Fix
