Just to keep everyone updated, I've been tackling libnb-platform-java
over the last few days. I've gone with the netbeans version 7 platform,
which is platform 13, since it seems to make sense to use the latest. As
noted in the rejection mail, there are files without source, and others
that can't be built on Debian so I've had to repack the source. I have
managed to build the windows binaries using mingw, which will mean that
software built using the netbeans platform on a debian machine can also
be run on a windows machine. I need to go through and check the
copyright file, then I think I should have a package ready for review.
