Re: Bug#382995: ITP: nekohtml -- HTML parser for Java

Hi Marcus,
first: I think this discussion fits better on the debian-java list. :)

I am not in the pkg-java group for so long but I think I can still answer some
of your questions.

I dont think this has to do with disk space. The thing is: With a properly
constructed source package you do not need the upstream sources in our SVN.

As far as I understood it you should do the 'repackaging' programmatically. Put
every needed operation to make the upstream sources suitable in the clean:: rule.

The dpatch/quilt/simple-patchsys thingie is part of the debian build system I think.
