Hi Matthew, thanks for reviewing this package.

Now I'm using javahelper. It simplified some tasks with packaging,

Done. The package was renamed to libcobertura-java-doc and the API doc is now
located at /usr/share/doc/libcobertura-java/api.

Yes, it is providing a library. The package is already splitted.

This was just laziness on my part. It is already fixed to depend on
the correct packages. cobertura source package now Build-Depend
on default-jdk-builddep and the binary packages Depend on
default-jre-headless | java2-runtime-headless | java2-runtime.

Done. Those files were removed from orig source since they are not needed
to build or use this package.

Upstream clarify this in her website
"The use of the Apache Software License in Cobertura is very straight forward.
Cobertura includes a set of ant tasks which can be used to call Cobertura. Ant
itself is licensed under the Apache Software License, Version 2.0. Because ant
tasks are loaded directly into the runtime of ant, and the GPL is incompatable
with all versions of the Apache Software License, ant tasks can not be licensed
under the GPL.
For this reason, the Cobertura ant tasks are licensed under the Apache Software
License, Version 1.1. And because these ant tasks are not GPL-compatable, but
the rest of Cobertura is GPL, when these ant tasks invoke Cobertura they must
do so by exec'ing a new JVM."
If this is not clear, what's the correct thing to do? Contact

Yes, fixed. It was a typo.
Thanks again for the review and the feedback.
I uploaded a new version of this package to mentors:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/c/cobertura
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/c/cobertura/cobertura_1.9.3+dfsg-1.dsc
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
