Hi Sekou,

I am quite interested in such a project, as myself is considering doing 
the same thing.

Will you consider move the project to to get more visibility?

I hope it is OK. IMO, this would be best.

I think in order to use org.freedesktop.*, it would be better to get 
some sort of acknowledgment from Sort of like host the 
project here.

One example is the D-Bus Java binding.

If there are enough interest, maybe it worth an umbrella project for 
Java bindings for different specs.
