Some remarks:

I cloned the sources from


The package fails to build from source, probably the same issue as with
openviewerfx, an incompatibility with bouncycastle 1.51.

src/org/jpedal/io/CertificateReader.java:70: error: method getContent in
class RecipientInformation cannot be applied to given types;
                        envelopedData = recipientInfo.getContent(key,
  required: Recipient
  found: Key,String

What is your motivation to package jpdal4-lgpl for Debian? Is this
library a requirement for something else? Why would we need jpedal4 if
the development is frozen?

The package claims jpedal4 is actively developed but is this really
true? The homepage address of the fork is


and I can see only two commits there and no releases. Looks pretty dead
in my opinion.
