No strong opinion on this so far.
I will sum differences between 5.5-0.59 (currently in Feisty) and
current 5.5.1-2 in gutsy:
1. License is updated so that package can be installed directly without
manual step. It is main
reason why we want to get this update back to Feisty.
2. We updated upstream from NetBeans 5.5 to NetBeans 5.5.1.
3. Minor fix - patch for netbeans.conf to point to Sun JDK.
We would like to get all 3 changes to Feisty. Daniel please let us now
if we should go through SRU or Backport process.
(Minimalistic version is to update only license.)
