It would be nice to see the gettext Java library in the official package.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 0.19.4

Steps to reproduce:
- Install the official package
- Find the Java library under /usr/share/gettext and a symlink in /usr/share/java

What happens:
- No gettext Java library, in no place.

What should happen:
- As the 2nd step of 'Steps to reproduce'

In addition:
I've created a PKGBUILD that builds as the official package but install just the Java libraries:
It would be nice if it could be merged in the main package.
This task depends upon

I'm not sure this is ever going to be fixed, as core packages cannot depend on packages in extra and I don't think anyone wants to add openjdk to core.

So, can't my AUR package be included in extra or community?
