Hi David! Sorry I missed your email; for some reason it got sent to my

We do plan to package Clojure 1.9 (coordinating with the Java team---the
package actually lives with them currently), although I am not sure what
the timeline for that will be or who will be leading that effort.

Looking over the linked `clj` and `clojure` utilities, we actually have
very similar scripts already included in the Clojure package:

- clojure rlwraps the Clojure jar
- clojurec invokes Java directly with the correct classpath

You can take a look at those scripts here:

I'm excited to hear you're interested in volunteering with us! :) Feel
free to look over the Clojure packaging (linked above) and let us know
if you have any questions. You can also reach us on IRC in our channel
#debian-clojure on OFTC.

You may also be interested in the Clojure packaging tutorial I put
together on our wiki (although it will be less applicable to projects
that build with maven, like the official Clojure repositories):

Thanks again for reaching out!
