I have migrated ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-java/libnetlib-java.git and ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-java/libmtj-java.git as well as injected the latest pristine-tar. Previous pristine-tar info is missing as well as all tags are lost. I do not feel that the missing tags is a real problem. I'd volunteer to inject them manually in case you would prefer this. > Also, I've been meaning to send you a mail regarding libsnappy-java, > since we have an RC bug there.
