As far as I can tell, > you have the rights to do so, and this packages definitely qualifies as > a good candidate Because, AFAIK, nobody answer to my initial request email (back in September 2008) :) But, I'm really happy to be part of pkg-java now and will move this package (and maybe others too) to it. This lead me to 2 questions : - Is there some sort of policy which define good/bad candidates for pkg-java usage ? part of Apache Commons is a MUST ? being a framework too ? forbidden to contrib/non-free ? - And BTW, I was looking for pkg-java SVN repository layout and usage guidelines at java.debian.net and wiki.debian.org and can't found any up-to- date documentation (just ).

As you may have seen one of the binary-package (libcommons-jci-jsr199-java) is currently disabled but need >= 6.x Java API (i.e. JSR199 got included in Java 6 release). This is why I use OpenJDK6 and tend to prefer to keep it as prefered B-D JDK. > * I'd personally prefer an upload to experimental... (during the freeze). This debate already took place last December  ;) I'll update target release to experimental after playing with pkg-java SVN repository. > Cheers, Cheers too,  http://java.debian.net/developers.html  http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.debian.devel.mentors/34403/focus=34425 [PS : No need to CC me, I'm subscribed to debian -java && -mentors] -- Damien Raude-Morvan / www.drazzib.com
