I have been looking into packaging 20161201, but haven't made any significant progress on it. Here are some notes regarding what I have looked into so far: 1) It's not going to be feasible to get an updated libtruth-java into stretch before the freeze, as truth depends upon another library com.google.errorprone:error_prone_annotations 2) According to the POM, the dependency on libtruth-java is only needed for testCompile, so we could just skip the tests, but I found a few references to packages in com.google.common.truth sprinkled around the src/ tree as well, so we'll need to patch those out. 3) The build system is now maven-based, which should be a step forward, but mh_make doesn't get very far with it, and I haven't had enough cycles to look into sequencing the individual poms. 4) There is a note in the upstream README.md: Running `mvn -DskipTests -pl externs/pom.xml,pom-main.xml,pom-main-shaded.xml` will skip building the GWT version of the compiler. This can speed up the build process significantly. I'm unsure as to what the differences between the GWT-version and the non-GWT-version would be with respect to the Debian package. So, in summary, I haven't been much progress on an new version (despite a number of failed starts). I'm happy to work together with someone, or to help with sponsoring and/or reviewing. Cheers, tony
