Joining pkg-java and some packaging questions

Dear Debian Java Maintainers,

I'd like to join the the Debian Java Maintainers group and contribute my
packages [1,2]. My Alioth username is hauro-guest. It would be nice if
you could add me to the team.

My packages are almost ready for review but there are some questions
unanswered to me. I hope you can help me out here!

1. Is there any progress with java.util.Scanner in gcj? (See [3].) On of
my packages would compile with ecj if java.util.Scanner is available. At
present, it has to go to contib because of that.

2. What needs to be done to build a package with Sun's JDK under
pbuilder? I don't know how to tell pbuilder to auto-accept the EULA. I
think there was a post on that but I'm unable to find the information on
the web.

3. I currently split the jFFTW package [1] into an -java and -jni
package. But the packages are rather small and I thought about combining
them. Doing so gave some weird lintian warnings. Is a small package a
blocker or would it be ok to have a ~20k package?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best regards
