IMHO it makes more sense to use pkg-java as the team which cares for the
package. If you might be in urgend trouble to find a sponsor I would
not deny sponsoring because finally it helps Debian Med and we also have
packages in our SVN which are not really medicine related but I would
welcome if this would be the exception.

There is no real need to upload the *.deb and *.changes files when
asking for sponsoring - the other files will be needed (except of
debian.tar1.bz2 - I havn't looked into this - but it seems unusual)

Sounds like a killer application for packaging Java stuff - we should
keep this in mind ...
