I've been following these threads in both the ubuntu and debian lists
- I just want to prevent any further discussion that will be
off-topic. Stefane Fermigier is specifically asking for help getting
into the Ubuntu Partner repository. They do not have the same
requirements as Debian Main as they already have another java
application with several hundred pre-packaged .jars included in it
(Stefane gave the reference in a previous email).

I believe he wants to avoid the whole java library packaging mess [1]
by getting directly into Ubuntu Partner.

I know nothing of the Ubuntu Partner repository itself, I just wanted
to prevent duplicating the two previous threads on debian-java and
ubuntu-devel. This thread should probably focus on getting into the
Ubuntu Partner repository.

Also, there was a Google Summer of Code idea to help fix the java mess
that was inspired by the debian-java thread. If any student or someone
from Ubuntu is interested, a brief outline of the concept can be found
here [2].
