Are you upstream developer? (Sorry can't remember)
I've downloaded the source tarball it doesn't have Authors, Copyright,
License, Readme, Install files so simply by looking at top-level
directory I have no clue who wrote it, what license it is and how to
set it up and start using it. Without this I can't even start
I then ran my magic tool "licensecheck -r ." which told me that all
files are LGPL 2.1 with incorrect FSF address. Either use template 
or change the address in your current template or ommit address at all
pointing to their website for example.
BTW I have no clue how to package java applications / libraries. I've
heard that ant is quite popular for java packages. If you are using
ant could you please give me some details about it. If you are not
using ant, could you please consider using it? There are tools
available in debian to turn ant based projects into deb's.
one line to give the library's name and an idea of what it does.
