I am developing an open-source Java application and want to distribute it for Ubuntu (12.04+) users through a PPA.
My app depends on a Trove4j library v3+, but there is only 2.1 version of this library in the official Ubuntu Precise repository. Starting from Quantal there is a trove3 package containing required version of the library. I don't want to make a downgrade to 2.1 version (because of performance issues in that old version).
What is the best way to overcome this limitation?
Maybe I can make a fork of the official trove3 package in my PPA or just copy trove3 source, change codename etc. and upload it as a separate package to my PPA?
