The Package of the Month award goes to: pkgsrc/lang/wonka, a BSD-licensed Java2 JVM, from those fine people at Acunia (, nominated by myself. Right now, Nick Hudson has made it work for i386 and arm, but I'm sure there are people queuing up to do other platforms. The software itself is very well-written, with a very good layering, and is of the highest quality.
