I've a request to package Jin  which is a java frontend for online chess game servers.
The project is gpl, no a problem with that.
Now I've two questions, can we put and package the official .jar published by the author ?  contain all needed to run the game. Main deps is java (the sun one is recommended)
Or to be accepted, it would be preferable to rebuild entirely from sources (the author mention that)  but seems to not be in favour of.
In case of it can be accepted in obs. which layout in the filesystem would be the best /opt/jinchess ?
Thanks for your time
