Hello Thomas,

Thank you for the welcome message and your wishes for this project. I hope
this contribution can be of great benefit to the Debian and non-Debian
community. I also want to salute the java packaging team and hope we get to
work together.

As Paul mentioned earlier, we've talked about this and there will be no
forking. I apologize for not updating the project description (that's done
now). My wish is to reuse javahelper as much as possible and build on top
of it. I hope we can work together on building and improving these tools.

I'm eugecm on #debian-clojure if you need to contact me, I'm there 24/7 and
you can also contact me via email.
