If the package is totally broken because it can't download an external
file it needs, then that would be an RC bug, appropriate to fix in an
etch point release.  It looks as though only part of the functionality
is broken, though, in that there are multiple tarballs you can download
with java-package and only one fails, so the situation is less clear.

I'd still consider it something fixable in etch, but I'm neither a RM
nor a java-package maintainer.
