I am looking for a sponsor for my package of OpenSearchServer. I sent an RFS to the debian-mentors list two days ago.
As OpenSearchServer is a JAVA application running into TOMCAT, I thought the DEBIAN/JAVA community is a good place to find help !
Thank you if you can have a look, and help me to find a sponsor.
Best regards,Emmanuel Keller

I am the creator and main developer of OpenSearchServer, an open source search engine hosted at SourceForge.
Because a large part of our community is using the Debian distribution, I think it would be great to have it embedded in the Debian distribution.
OpenSearchServer is hosted at SourceForge:http://sourceforge.net/projects/opensearchserve/
The application works with TOMCAT6 and any *JAVA 5 or JAVA 6 virtual machine. *I did my best to fit well with the Tomcat6 package.I think a good sponsor will be someone who is comfortable with JAVA/TOMCAT environment.
Here are the information needed, copy of the current control file:
