This is the Debian branch of a fork of Play! Framework. It is intended to be used to build Debian packages for Play! Framework
in two fashions:

- Normal Play! Framework
- Play! Framework with an older release of Hibernate to support JDBC < 4 (the -hh package)

As this branch will be kept up-to-date with the latest Play! Framework from upstream, it will be rebased often, so be away that
if you intend to pull from it, you will have history rewrites.

Once you have checked out this branch, you can build the debian packages with:

fakeroot ./debian/rules clean binary
