It's maintainer is the same as the maintainer as for sablevm. (Hi
Gadek ;-)). When I would have made such a package I would have used
jamvm as I'm it's maintainer in Debian.
free-java-sdk provides some of the stuff kaffe provides too but I
would always use kaffe because its more complete.
I still don't think this is a well choosen name. "Java" is a trademark
by SUN. And we are not allowed to call it "Java" when we don't verify
we are compatible to SUN (which currently costs much money).
