cross and java are (were?) documented on the wiki, as in this old

back then, ovruni was well-acquainted with the java repo and its
purpose. as for cross, my hunch is that no one is using it nowadays,
and removing it might be a good idea.

i think i may have created alarm during the addition of ARM support.
this is were Archlinux ARM places some important packages of their
own[1], and {core,extra,community} packages we import from them could
depend on them. i have forgotten and departed enough to be unable to
tell whether this matters anymore.

cheerful hacking
