Because I'm not using SVN anymore and this was a quick shot to give any
answer. Therefore, I've asked Günter if this was correct.

I don't know. I'm not familiar with the jed-extra packaging.

Because there was a dispute some time ago, after which I've decided to
not take part on the maintainance of the jed-extra package anymore. I
still maintain the infrastructure (SVN, mailinglist, …) for jed-extra,
but I don't do any commits; except emergency commits.

To minimize the work for you I would prepare a source package and
provide you the URL.
