Hello Jerome,

Here are some initial remarks:

Your package fails to build from source with this error message.

src/org/jpedal/io/CertificateReader.java:69: error: method getContent in
class RecipientInformation cannot be applied to given types;
                        envelopedData = recipientInfo.getContent(key,
  required: Recipient
  found: Key,String
  reason: actual and formal argument lists differ in length

Where exactly did you download the sources from? I understand that they
didn't release a new version back then, but you should always ensure
that someone can compare the original sources with your tarball by
either describing the necessary steps in README.source or by providing a
get-orig-source target or both. By the way it seems they have released a
new version on sourceforge.net now.



There is nothing wrong with a separate script for repacking the sources
but you might also want to consider to use the Files-Excluded mechanism
with debian/copyright format 1.0 which is IMO a better and standardized
solution which avoids the reinvention of the wheel for every new
package. For custom get-orig-source targets I can also recommend:


Since openviewerfx is an application, you must provide some sort of
wrapper to launch the Java app. You can either use java-wrappers (See
example [1] and [2]) or your package should depend on jarwrapper.


Please use https for the Vcs-Browser field.

I get into more details when you fix the compile issue and provide a way
to download and compare the original sources with your tarball.
