The libxml2 is part of the java runtime environment. It will stay the same for a long while. I am not really comfortable to mess with JVM files, of which I do not have control of. So I would rather not remove it. Also I am not even sure that they are the same version and will be in future.

I am wondering what could be the way to solve that?

You could move java to apps/java and adapt the stuff that is using java to look for it there.

That would surely be no problem for me. I am on it.

Any updates? I continue to have the problem during QGIS installation.

Increased priority to critical.

Hi, I am sorry but I have not been able to finish this up and forgot about it.

I am right now stepping down from my duties in this because of the missing time and looking for a substitute.

If no one should step up in reasonable time, I will redirect this to the mailinglist and ask a member of the other java based projects to step in.

After some talk and emails, I decided to remove java as a library package. Since no one came back on taking over its maintenance (which puzzles me a bit), for now I think it is ok to remove it. If something comes up, it will most probably be best to install java as an application, and reference it from any other project, if necessary.

gvsig has it own java - other java dependencies were removed or obsoleted (due lack of maintance). Eventually a common java package should be reintroduced.
