We've been discussing this on the Eclipse p2 dev list.
The following has been proposed:
1. Deprecate and remove the C++ Pack200 implementation and command
2. Maintain the Pack200 standard and Pack200 implementation written
in java, including adding support for Java 9 and 11 new pool
constants and attributes.
3. Don't deprecate the Pack200 standard or the Java library api or
the java implementation.
I'll sign up to maintain the java implementation.
