The package looks good to me. Before uploading it to the NEW queue, I
think we should list Jan Materne and Mark Sinke to debian/copyright.
Their names are listed in pom.xml, project.xml and ./xdocs/changes.xml,
and so I assume that they're also copyright holders. (Admittedly, it's
not really clear from the upstream license file and the individual files
don't carry any sort of license statement.) If you're okay with that, I
can make the change to the repo and prepare the upload.
