Ah, I understand. And yes, I am working on an ebuild which provides an end-user-application, which is called Hibiscus, an online-banking software [1]. I also filed a bug-report for it [2], which also lists the dependencies which are not yet packaged in Gentoo but I have created ebuilds for. Although the ebuilds are already working (at least for me) so that one can use the application productively, they still have some structural flaws, the biggest one beeing missing Eclipse libraries like eclipse-runtime, forms, jface, osgi and birt. Currently those dependencies are not build from source but installed as binary. But I will write a separate mail on this issue. I thought I get Hibiscus' dependencies one after another into Gentoo (java-overlay?) and started with hbci4java [3], the library which implements the HBCI protocol and therefore provides the core banking functionality for Hibiscus. Although I have some experience with Java and Gentoo Packaging, I could need a lot of help from the Java-team to manage this not-quite small project. Do you maybe have some advices for me on how to approach this task?
