Hello Henry, and thanks for your mail.

I'm aware of your work, and my first attempts were just re-building and
minor adaptations of your rpms.
Reasons of re-doing it again are twice :
- I wanted mandrake-specific packages. I wanted slight integration with
package naming, grouping, dependencies and menu system of my own box. And i
wanted also they could be integrated into officials contributions.
- I wanted pure-open source package, were you sometimes uses binaries
(optional.jar, sun jaxp implementation, in you ant package).

Debian recommands /usr/share/data, but FHS says 'Thou shall install data
only in /usr/share' :-)
Java archives seems rather libraries than data. After all, in most
java-related appliction distribution, those are in a libs directory. So the
choice of /usr/lib/java for jars, and /usr/bin for launching scripts.
