Does libforms-java qualify for main?


Hi,

I have repackaged libforms-java, using kaffe (I formerly also successfully
used free-java-sdk but was convinced to jump to kaffe), but (see attached
file for details):
1. I hit the current GUI issue with kaffe 1.6.
2. free-java-sdk aka sablevm does not really work.
3. the thing works perfectly with Sun's Java, and as part of FreeMind.
4. the example also does work actually with kaffe 1.5, even though there
is a warning about "NO LAYOUT SET !!!", and the GUI is kind of "not so
nice" (but usable, see picture).

So, does it qualify for main, or not? And, anyway, does someone want to be
my sponsor (Arnaud, you candidated!?)?

Thanks, Eric

PS: right now, I didn't yet upload the new version to CVS, but will do
shortly, and the packages are available from:
debhttp://eric.lavar.de/comp/linux/debian/experimental/
deb-srchttp://eric.lavar.de/comp/linux/debian/experimental/

Does libforms-java qualify for main?


Hi,

I didn't get any answer to this email, so I reformulate my question:
- is someone willing to sponsor me on this package placed in main?
- if not, is someone willing to sponsor me on this package placed in contrib?

Thanks, Eric

(and the version is also uploaded in CVS)

Just wait some more days. People jsut need time to check packages from
others. Especially libraries need careful testing to make sure they work
with free runtimes. You need to find a proper testing application and
all.

Just be patient.


Cheers,
Michael

Wow, wow, nobody told me it was a prerequisite to package Java for Debian!
OK, I'll do my best... ;-)
