To work on packages with long bug lists (especially on audacity and
eclipse), to work on bugs I had no time before.

Fixing bug #1. ;)

It's not easy, especially I have no experience with ant. Eclipse is not
the easiest package to start with. It's big and ugly. Niels Thykier,
Adrian Perez and I formed a group and nearly rewrote the package based
on eclipse-build [1]. Eclipse-build aims to ease the building of the
Eclipse SDK for Linux distributions. You can see the current status at
the git repository [2]. Now the package is only big. It needs 15 minutes
to build (on slower system it can take hours).
We can need help from ant hackers, FHS experts and owners of non-x86

I like to see something like ${shlibs:Depends} for Java packages.
