Intent to package: jikes
I've been watching the debian-.* mailing lists for a couple of weeks
now and would like to contribute something to the debian effort.
I have already debianized some packages for my own use when .deb's weren't
available and would like to give them back to the community.
There's one package in particular that I'd like to see in future debian
releases, namely jikes (a rather fast Java compiler by IBM which is
written in C++ and distributed by IBM in source form under an Open Source
license agreement. hint: rather fast means that it blasts your jdk javac
What's the correct approach for getting this thing out of my door into the
debian archives (i.e. what issues need to be cleared beforehand ?)
