Thanks for the details. I will begin with the following links. And also
start finding the dependencies and if required any help will email you.

I think you didn't send to email@example.com (just click on
reply-to-all to be sure).

Cool, nice to see you are interested. Here is the way I see things going;
1. See what are the dependencies and first seek those that are atomic
(don't depend on any other library). They will be the first things to
package and I expect them to be small libraries, pretty easy to
2. Try to see what modifications to the maven pom can be made to
support Debian builds and if possible integrate them upstream. This
should not intrude on the normal way development works. Maybe create
even a maven plugin that should ease this task.
3. Build on those until we manage to get everything in.
Simple, no :> !
If you want something more specific, I think we will probably begin
with jSieve  or jDKIM . Mime4j 0.6 is already packaged and you
can see how from .
p.s. I am busy with some other projects so I don't expect things to go
wild here. I hope to get James in a few months, with your help maybe
faster. Don't hesitate to ask if you have problems. You can find me on
James dev list for James related stuff. You can even send me private
messages but for packaging stuff it's best if it is public.
This page should help you to get started with packaging a Maven project
I'm working on improving the documentation for this package, so any
feedback or questions will be useful.
