Hi Andreas,

I guess that you are not the only one ;)

Java support those days is still a bit of a pain, and I have to admit
that my policy is to wait that GPLed SUN Java gets pacakged in Debian
main before doing some difficult work. But definitely, when it will
happen, let us participate to the Java packaging frenzy that it will
trigger !

I have listed many java programs on the Debian wiki, and I think that
there will be enough work for many many more persons than we are. We
will have to motivate new java developpers to work for our project when
Java will have the momentum in Debian.

(And I am also lacking basic Java knowledge)

Have a nice day,
