Hello Niels, Java Team:

I have uploaded a lucene4 source package that invokes javacc to rebuild
the queryparser classes from the .jj files.

I'm not certain about the severity with respect to jessie, so I'm
writing to discuss whether an unblock request or a severity/ignore is

The package should regenerate the parser classes in case there is a
change to the .jj files, but I don't have an idea of how often this
might occur.  The regenerate step isn't part of normal upstream build
process; upstream ships the pre-generated class files.  However, there
doesn't seem to be any harm in regenerating, and we're now treating the
.jj files as "source."

Thank you,
