Re: Java development on debian ppc

While I am not a communist I do have to agree with Stephane. The point
with Debian is to build a system that is not hamstrung by intellectual
property law. If you do not agree with that goal then complaining that
Debian cannot do this or that is a waste of both your time and ours.

I will happily try to get a Kaffe .deb built for PowerPC. I don't know
whether it is worth doing so with the 1.0.5 release, because it is now
way behind the current state of CVS. I need to get Transvirtual to do
a 1.0.6 release, but that is apparently a complex issue at the moment.
