The "intended for use in server-related development" is not something I
believe we should have any more. It creates an artificial limit which we
don't need. The "written in the Java language" is also perhaps slightly too
tight, as we shouldn't exclude [daemon].

Less importantly, the name 'package' is confusing, and component or product
might make more sense.

I'm not proposing radical change, just a tidying up of the charter,
especially to eliminate the parts that are clearly wrong. References to
"sponsoring subproject" and "catalog packages and other resources" are
especially inaccurate.
