I have forwarded Brian's original email to Charles in a separate email.

I admit not to know the answer. Brian is good at all this and can tell, I presume. It is not in his patch from what I saw. Thank
you for spotting that. We should find a way to integrate the person behind the Ubuntu work with pkg-java, I presume.

libhibernate-validator-java (4.0.2.GA-6ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * Fix missing jar file from /usr/share/java.

It sounds a bit like Onkar (CCed) was addressing a bit of the same that Brian addressed. So, let us hope for Torsten not to have
the typical vacation, @Brian: please consider updating your patch with the hindsight of the Ubuntu patch, so we can possibly
coordinate our eyeballs' attention a bit in future releases, and just some friendly hello to everyone.
