You are right, there is not yet clear roadmap for Java in Debian. The
Debian-Java policy will fix some gaps, but I'm not in for a Debian-Java
Developer's guide in the Debian-Java policy! ;-)

IMHO, the Debian Java Policy must say that you have to tag a package,
not how to do it. Where to put the api documentation, not how to do it, etc.

But I completely agree with you, we need a Debian Java Developer's guide
or something equivalent. The wiki could be a starting point and a lot of
the topics in your mail MUST be solved. Many thanks for pointing them.
Also (maybe you already know), there are some points that are not easy
to fix :-D

I'll think about a way to achieve your goal but I *personnaly* don't
want to put the howto's in the policy.

Thanks for your suggestions,
