RFC: Removal of kotlin package
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I was the one who originally requested the inclusion of the kotlin package. Kotlin requires multiple JDKs to compile, and with the current policy for packages in Solus, this requirement cannot be fulfilled. Because Kotlin is currently part of the blockers preventing the JDK in the Solus repository from being updated, I'd like Kotlin to be removed from the Solus repository, so that the JDK may be more easily updated, and other software depending on it can also be updated (like Gradle, for example).
