      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      In java.c, java.h, manifest_info.h, and parse_manifest.c is code used earlier but redundant nowadays mainly related to the Main-Class manifest attribute. See https://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/core-libs-dev/2020-January/064190.html for a good explanation which I save to copy into here which also contains a patch. Furthermore, the patch contains a test for SplashScreen-Image jar manifest attribute supporting unicode. I had the impression a bug number was required for any progress. I was not really sure how to fill in the required fields for component, sub-component, os, etc.
