Hi Chris, Thank you for the patch. It can be even simpler by setting the build.time property in debian/rules instead of patching the upstream build. This will look like this:
DEB_ANT_ARGS := -Dbuild.time='$(shell dpkg-parsechangelog --show-field Date)' With Ant the properties defined on the command line take precedence on the properties defined in the build file. I'll upload the fix shortly. Emmanuel Bourg __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
