Hi Gilles,

That's great progress on ppc64el - thank you for working on that.  If
you don't mind committing directly to packaging repo, that's my preference.

(A bit of an aside, but I'm happy to see the Java Team get better at
team-maintaining packages.  In my mind, that means that *I* need to make
it a habit to follow the good examples that other developers have set -
e.g. declaring myself the owner of a bug, using RFH when needed, and
generally being more collaborative.)

Regarding an upload to unstable, note that gluegen2 and libjogl2 are
basically a matched set, and so in order to avoid generating FTBFS bugs
in unstable, we need to get libjogl2 updated as well.  Therefore, I
suggest applying your patches and uploading 2.3.1-2 to experimental,
where it is easily accessible for working on the update to libjogl2 and
eventually scilab.

After you apply your patches, we can also look at updating gluegen to 2.3.2.
