Hi,
I think you didn't send to debian-java@lists.debian.org (just click on reply-to-all to be sure).
Thx.

       Hello,

       This year I participated in GSoC for the Apache James (Java
       enterprise
       email client) and I wish to package and maintain James for Debain.
       Eric my mentor just told me that I have been accepted as an Apache
       comiter for James so I will be able to support/advocate Debian
       packaging rules upstream. I think this will be beneficial both to
       Debian and Apache.


   client -> server :)

       An important aspect of James is that it is component based (on
       Spring)
       so it fits the Debian way of separating things. The current
       components
       are: the mailets, jdkim library, mime4j library, jspf library, the
       mailbox implementations (jcr, maildir, jpa and now HBase), and
       other.
       I already found some of the components in Debian, others are
       missing.

       Cool features for James are: it externalizes all email processing in
       Mailets (Java classes). So you can easy implement your business
       logic
       in a Mailet. Another cool stuff is that it now supports email
       and user
       storage over HBase (NoSQL). This feature is not that widespread
       among
       e-mail servers so it will be a great addition.

       I already am a member of the Java team so I have write permission on
       Alioth, where the packaging part is kept. Unfortunately I don't
       have a
       lot of experience in packaging Java applications so I will need help
       here, most importantly to get me started. I don't have a clue
       yet, but
       I didn't gave it much taught either. I will also need someone to
       sponsor the packages.

       I don't have plans to do things over night. I imagine that this will
       take a few months to complete.

       Thanks,
