I've already spent many days (weeks?) of unpaid work to get gerrit into 
Debian. It's a bitch to package, has an imense list of dependencies and I even 
have to improve the Debian Java packaging infrastructure to get it built.

It feels like cheating to me, if others take shortcuts like this. Why should I 
do this hard work anymore?

It would also be much easier for me to just provide a downloader for the war 
file provided by upstream.

Apropos: The company developing jdownloader is searching for a Java developer 
in Fürth near Nürnberg (Germany). Somebody could help them to get a sane build 
system set up.
