Unfortunately, (since it makes your life slightly harder), Jalview 2.7
has a new (and again, slightly obscure) Java library dependency -
Jswingreader, which I have been unable to locate amongst the existing
jars packaged for debian.
So, here's a little update on the status of jalview. I have finished a preliminary package for the 2.6.1 version (that doesn't pull in this dependency).
It looks good to me, but as I haven't had the occasion to use jalview for quite a while now , I may be missing important things.
The package can be downloaded there:
It needs packages which are not in debian yet, but only in the Java team repository:
deb http://pkg-java.alioth.debian.org unstable/all/
Please test this package, and tell me what is wrong ;-)...
For the record, the packaging can be found there:
My plans are the following:
* upload this package to debian almost as-is
* wait for Jim to provide the source code for vamsas (hint, hint ;-)...)
* then, move to main and package 2.7 at the same time
There is only one small detail left (barring problems with the current package): I need a statement from the copyright holders of the vamsas-client.jar file saying that using, copying, distributing and linking against this file are allowed. Just stating it is GPL (I seem to remember it is the case ?) won't be OK, as Debian will not have the sources, and hence will not have the possibility to comply with the GPL requirements.
 When I submitted my ITP of jalview, I was working with enzymes. I then moved to another lab where I worked essentially on inorganic catalysts, for which the need for jalview was inexistant (which partly explains why it took me so long...). Now, I'm back to the previous lab for good, and I'll be using jalview much more often ;-)...
