I haven't seen any ping from you regarding #519938. As a general guideline, if
an ITP is assigned to someone you should try to contact him before working
alone on your side :)
For example, I would have said to you that there is already a preview package
in pkg-java SVN repository :
This preview package contains :
- a debian/watch file
- a reviewed debian/copyright
but it's missing some interesting bits from your package :
- a manpage
- a launcher shell script
I think your first step will be to commit this work to pkg-java SVN repository
(you can request access on ).
Secondly, to explain the "stalled" status of this ITP :
YUI Compressor won't work with genuine rhino debian package .
I've seen in your debian/rules that you are trying to "apt-get source rhino"
during build : it seems wrong from my point of view. You cannot rely on deb-
src lines in /etc/apt/sources.list to build your package and you cannot
download source code during build (even when using apt-get).
One possible short term solution will be to create a new rhino-source package
(like we have cacao-source package) to cleanly Build-Depends from but I
haven't had time to work on it (patches welcome :).
Other mid-term solution, will be to fix yuicompressor to use clean AST
(Abstract Syntax Tree) processor .
 Expected to be released in next rhino.
