OK. I added a watch-file, but unfortunately it does not work correctly. I used 
the example for SourceForge-projects but the structure of the simple releases 
is not unitary, see [1].
uscan reports: "Newest version on remote site is 2.1.1, local version is 
2.1.5". How can I fix this?

I wrote a repack-script and placed it in debian/ but I am not sure if this is 
what you meant. It takes the file-name of the original-upstream tarball as 
argument, unpacks it, deletes the jar files and packs it again.

Done (Added to trunk/simple-xml)

I realized, that simple-xml does not really depend on Java 5 _at runtime_, 
only at compile-time because of the use of annotations. Changed to java2-
But I do not know how the policy of Debian is. As much compatibility as 
possible? Is there even a JVM in Debian Unstable which does not provide java5-
runtime? Maybe we should depend on java5-runtime-headless and compile with 
Java 5 class format?

Thanks a lot for your help!

I am looking forward to the upload :)
