I would also like to see this application packaged on a more 
regular/consistent basis for openSUSE.

I note from its website (http://www.jitsi.org/) that it is under heavy 
development with their being nightly builds.  The download page of the 
site notes they are interested in working with different GNU/Linux 
distributions to package Jitsi : 

There is an 'rpm' on the site for download, but its 64-bit rpm packages 
have all its libraries and .jar (java apps) in /usr/lib/jitsi/ which is 
contrary to the openSUSE approach (where I believe 64-bit libraries 
usually go in /usr/lib64 and where I think on openSUSE java .jar files 
go in /usr/share/java/ ) . So I do not want to install the rpm from the 
jitsi web site.  I then looked at the source files on the Jtisi site to 
see if it was easy for a non-packager/average-user to build, but then I 
noted it required java beans to install , and ergo it is not so easy for 
the average user to install this application.

Hence a packager who understands this and who could liaise with Jitsi 
developers for packaging this application would be useful.

Thus I echo Al Bogner's request.
