Hi Paul,

Thank you for your comments.

I have already sent appropriate patches upstream.

I plan to consult with upstream regarding the wrapper scripts as
they do not provide any, and among the various existing clojure
packages for other distributions there does not seem to be a common
naming/semantics convention.  If upstream decides to provide scripts
then it may be appropriate to send the manpages upstream.

I considered that, but decided to wait until the proposal is finalised
before implementing it.

This is required because I use cdbs's simple-patchsys:

No, only clojure itself.

I have seen them but have decided to go with cdbs as I prefer it,
it simplifies the rules file for this type of package, and there
seems to be little precedent for using javahelper or debhelper 7
for Java-related packages in the archive (4 packages use javahelper,
1 uses debhelper 7).
