Julien, what you describe below is surely the default recommendation
and I agree of course.
Official channels are from jogamp.org: git, bugzilla, wiki, forum, etc.
The github repo and others are, as you said, just a backup for convenience.
If anybody answers other questions, they might want to drop the answer in
this forum, wiki, bugzilla and give the source a link.
Just an example to not lose valuable information, if so.
