Have you tried to compile/run freemind with any of the available
DFSG-free JREs so far?
Not personally, but some users have unintentionally and unsuccessfully tried to start FreeMind with kaffe and gcj. Would I get a different result if I would try to _compile_ first FreeMind with whatever free JDK?

I'm not yet a Debian developer, going through the documentation and
the process of becoming one.

Recently I spent a few hours on creating a freemind package myself,
since I hadn't seen the links to your package so far. If you want,
I'll be happy to sponsor your package.
It would be a pleasure, I just need to find a key signer nearby. Anybody living around Böblingen (or Stuttgart)? So, what would be the next steps? Remember: I'm still going through the documentation (and I didn't think it would be so quick to get a sponsor :-) ).

Thanks, Eric
