A lot of the ideas that the Debian packagers follow are similar or
inspired by the jpackage conventions (except of course using rpm as
archive format). See for some of the ideas. But
even so getting the different packagers and (upstream) developers
together for an hackfest to share experiences and knowledge is very
worthwhile. We all wish GNU Classpath/gcj/kaffe/etc were complete enough
to function as drop in core libraries, compilers and runtimes for
jpackage, but in reality there is still a little work to be done. The
idea of the meeting is to find the hotspots that are the most
troublesome for the packagers at this moment.

Cool. I didn't knew SuSE was using the free toolchains for their
jpackage efforts. Could you please forward the DevJam call for
participation to the right SuSE mailinglist?
