** edit /usr/share/java-package/sun-j2sdk.sh to reflect the actual JDK
1.5 release version.
I talked to one of the Debian Java guys, but he looked pretty
indifferent to it. Seeing they are mostly concerned about getting a Free
Java implementation going I wouldn't count on java-package getting fixed
in Debian in the near future.
Not having to patch java-package would go a long way in making it easier
for users to install the latest Sun Java.
"I have worked for several commercial organizations where the level of
hostility and lack of communication equaled or surpassed that in Debian.
At one of them one of the directors murdered another during a meeting."
