ok, thanks for updating the documentation.

I opened an ITP and a RFS, but the packages are not well suited for git
at the moment :

Ok, that's what I did in the meantime. The idea behind using pkg-java
upload queue was to distribute binary packages so that people can play
with them right away, whereas mentors.d.o is more about source packages
and there is 11 packages which is more work to fetch and build them one
by one (all the more that they are quite big).
At the moment, Andreas (#855941) already sponsored one of them and I'm waiting
for feedback from the ftpmasters so that if a problem arises, I can fix
it in the other packages if it's a common issue. This will prevent from
spamming packages in NEW with the same error.

Thanks again!
