As the Ubuntu release approached Matthias Klose (doko) requested that we uploaded eclipse to Ubuntu before it froze. As you have noticed we took that offer and began to upload to gain better testing coverage; which have unveiled a few bugs and solutions. Now that things have slowed down a bit on the Ubuntu side we will "return" to Debian and get it uploaded here. One of the prime factors for not uploading to Debian yet is that eclipse does not use system jars but pre-bundled ones. We are currently working on that and three other things we want fixed before we upload to Debian/Experimental. Help is of course more than welcome - particularly people skilled with ant, since a lot of our work involves translating the Fedora spec file into ant code and sending it to eclipse-build. Nevertheless; Sunday we updated BTS to reflect what bugs that we have fixed (or at least expect to have fixed) and we dropped the "open" bug count from 34 to 12. I believe two more are fixed but I want to test them with the latest version of our build first. Another two can be reassigned to Azureus/be closed when eclipse hits unstable (#541638, #538808). All in all, we hope to provide a vastly better eclipse package for squeeze and dropping the bugs against eclipse to less than 10 at the same time. Once eclipse reaches experimental/unstable (and possibly before) we will start on eclipse-cdt; which involves 3 or so ITPs/ITAs first and perhaps even booting life into a maintainer (if it is not a pkg-java) - though I haven't checked beyond the ITPs/ITAs I already claimed. @Onkar: While it is a fair assumption that only a team of DDs would be insane enough to ITA eclipse; the truth is that the "Debian Orbital Alignment Team" only consists of 2 DMs and a "(no title)". On a related note; it will be one hell of an RFS... ~Niels  See the 4 first entries in our TODO list for more info. http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-java/eclipse.git;a=blob;f=debian/TODO;h=cd1eb8dfb861284056e7e2e75ddbdf885454f64f;hb=b1acc83825a61c1451b1ca26d1078801eb609259  To remove any doubts: We will use "Debian Java Maintainers" as Maintainer. PS: I removed all the CCs, because no one appeared to have a "Please CC me".
