Hi George, There are multiple ways to contribute. Probably the simplest in this case is to attach a patch to the bug report. Bug reports that include patches are quite welcome! You can also join the Java Team and push patches directly into the packaging repo and then collaborate with a team member to get the package uploaded. More information about that can be found here: https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/JavaPackaging For what it's worth, your original bug report email is still in my inbox... but I haven't had time to work up a patch yet. Thank you for taking the time to submit a bug report and to follow-up on it! Cheers, tony
