I feel obligated to comment on this. JPackage and Fedora have taken
different routes years ago and installing JPackage rpm on top of Fedora will
likely break Fedora packages due to:
* additional OSGi metadata Fedora ships but JPackage doesn't
* different places of maven pom and depmap changes
* different major versions of the same package (aka maven package in
JPackage was 1.x (last I checked) but in Fedora it's 3.x) and etc.
Would you please point to a place where jpackage is stated as compatible?
This is probably a legacy page which needs to be updated with current state
of affairs so people don't think they can mix and match freely.

Oops, bad example it seems. Had the link at hand yesterday,
don't find it now.
Now let's drop jpackage in this discussion. It is obviously a bad
example. But in a way, it's also a good one. Given your statement, I
find it highly unlikely that a packaged jpackage repo would have
survived a package review, if at all submitted. IMHO, this is really
the important issue here.
