So Java 16 started to land in user machines (e.g. my
Fedora JVM just got an update from Java 15 to 16) and with
this comes the removal of Pack200 technology.
The effect of that is that I can no longer compile
Tycho and p2 with my default JVM. Generating pack200 has
been no-op in Tycho when run on newer JVM already so
Eclipse Simrel puts a requirement which is harder and
harder to fulfill and becomes a real barrier to entry.
. Most of the EPP packages ship with JustJ where
pack200 is already not used so there wouldn't be much
change for most of our downloads.
