atm my priority #1 is to get openjdk7 to Factory for x86_64/i586, #2 is fix build
problems in Java:packages:JDK7 and push them into Factory as well (it
includes some updates into our old java stack). So arm is not what I can
work at least until 12.2.

Sure, but the other point is the debian's "spec" file is way more
comlicated than our current one ;-).
BTW: if there is someone in opensuse-arm want to work on that, don't
hesitate to contact me.
