Andrew Overholt suggested I ask here for help with this.
One of the really neat things about developing any Java program using
Classpath in Fedora is the integration of Classpath source in the rpm,
and how it integrates with Eclipse. This is great as it allows you to
browse the Classpath code under the api with F3 (or Right Click->Open
Declaration). We'd like to do the same for Java-GNOME and Frysk. Is
there a Wiki page, guide .. or general advice to accomplish this as it
is done via the Classpath rpm?
At EclipseCon 2006, Ben Konrath and I met Matt Ryan from Novell. We talked
about the general issues hurting Eclipse adoption in the Linux and FOSS
communities. Matt took the lead out of our conversations and along with
“Eclipse people” from other major distros, we proposed  the “Eclipse on
Linux Distributions” project at eclipse.org.
Last week, the project had its Creation Review  and it was a success!
I’d like to see most, if not all, of the work that our group is doing —
ChangeLog, autotools, specfile editing, packaging tools, etc. — get more
visibility as part of this project. We’re also looking forward to
collaborating with developers and packagers from other distributions.
Having this work under the eclipse.org umbrella will give it better
exposure and hopefully help in achieving our goal of bringing Eclipse
technology to Linux distribution users.
As usual, everyone is invited to join in our work. We hope to see some of
you on IRC (#fedora-java), fedora-devel-java-list(a)redhat.com, the upstream
mailing lists (linux-distros-dev(a)eclipse.org ... at least for now - it may
change to be linuxtools-dev(a)eclipse.org but that's yet to be finalized),
Yesterday, I updated to the eclipse* packages that are currently in
updates-testing. Before that, Eclipse started up cleanly; now, I get
an error on start-up to look in a logfile under
~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.2.0/configuration. That starts with:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.core.runtime 4 0 2006-11-19 18:56:20.352
org.osgi.framework.BundleException: The bundle could not be resolved.
Reason: Missing Constraint: Require-Bundle: org.eclipse.core.jobs;
!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2006-11-19 18:56:20.358
was not resolved.
I tried going back to the versions from core, but I'm still getting
that error. It is correlated with the update, so I definitely suspect
that in some way, but I didn't want to bugzilla it (it may be
something in my local config) without checking.
I hope I don't have to rebuild my workspace again ... argh. :(

Is anyone else seeing something like this on rawhide:
dirname: missing operand
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
mkdir: missing operand
Try `mkdir --help' for more information.

/usr/bin/gcj-dbtool -n $dbLocation 64
xargs: /usr/bin/gcj-dbtool: terminated by signal 6
I'm seeing it on ppc64, if that matters. I'll see if I can reproduce on

I think I tried "-clean", and I think it didn't have any effect ...
could try again to make sure if you want.

I have installed struts on FC5:
[root@charlesc ~]# pre struts
I restarted Tomcat to make sure it reloaded everything. However, when
I go to the struts docs
(http://charlesc.localdomain:8080/struts-documentation/), and click on
the javadoc link, I get a 404:
