Hello, today after running, as usual, yum update --skip-broken on rawhide,
i got several java packages installed as dependencies, I mean about
40 megs of rpms, some ant-, a lot of jetty-, mongo-, lucene-contrib,
some felix-, down to some eclipse-).
I can post the full list if needed.
The only java packages I had installed in rawhide before the update were:
jetty, jboss-, maven- and their dependencies (and openjdk).
Is all that an intended behaviour?

I hope someone here stumbled upon it, and has a good idea.
We have some Java source files with remarks in French, including
When running simple maven build it works well.
However, when using rpmbuild, we're failing
with errors like this:
[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:2.3.2:compile (default-compile) on project talendRoutines: Compilation failure: Compilation failure:
[ERROR] /home/xxx/git-repos/ovirt-dwh/rpmtop/BUILD/ovirt-dwh-3.0/data-warehouse/history_etl/etl_sources/talendRoutines/src/main/java/routines/TalendString.java:[274,35] unmappable character for encoding ASCII
When debugging this, we saw that rpmbuild actually sets LANG=C,
which disables unicode thus resulting with the error.
1. Did anyone see this before?
2. Any idea how to disable the LANG setting during rpmbuild?
I'm sure Fedora Java dev's should be aware of it.
We could shave off a few cpu and i/o cycles by doing mvn-rpmbuild verify
instead of install  on packages that do not need the artifact to be
available in the local cache further down the %build or %install section.
I think you may be interested in this :)

Subject: [jboss-rpm] JBoss AS Fedora Test day is coming!

This is a friendly reminder that on 17th April we'll have a JBoss AS
test day in Fedora.
1. How should I prepare?
Make sure you have a Fedora 17 environment somewhere (VM preferred) with
latest updates installed. This is very important.
2. What we'll test?
Glad you asked!
We'll have some test cases. I'm in the process of writing them currently:
A test case is a set of step you execute and compare your results with
Here is an example test case for JBoss AS:
If you can think of things that may be worth testing - let me know ASAP
(or write a test case yourself!).
3. Where we'll meet?
I'll be available on that day in #fedora-test-day channel on freenode.
4. How can I participate?
You can help us with testing and proposing test cases!
After you execute the test cases, please add your results to the table:
(The table itself will be slightly modified to meet the current test
If you have any questions - feel free to ping me.
See you on Tuesday!

Looks like https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/EclipsePlugins#pdebuild
needs to be updated. But we need to make things conditional for F17+ and before.
Perhaps eclipse-pde should define a macro for it, but it would need to get
pushed all the way down to F15 to be useful. Otherwise every package will
probably need to put in a conditional if you want to have a common spec for

Hello, all -
I just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Zack, and I am hoping
to participate to GSOC this year by helping contribute to the Fedora
My proposal is based creating spins of Fedora based on using JBoss tools
and community packages for application development, which I've submitted it
over at Google Melange<http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proposal/review/google/gsoc2012/dzack/1>
I would greatly appreciate any feedback or comments on it, as I would
really like to produce something the community will enjoy using. I am also
still currently looking for a mentor, and would welcome any guidance in
Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hopefully working with you
