I've just discovered svnkit is a dead package at rawhide. Being a
dependency for OmegaT 2.6.* I wonder about the reasons to be deprecated.
Anybody can give me any hint?
I asked in #fedora-java about the possibility of building JBoss AS7 on CentOS6. It was suggested that I send a mail to this list in the hope that "some people that know more where to start will comment on it" :0
So, "people that know more where to start", where do I start?
I'm trying to figure out when it is okay to use a custom depmap file. I
have a package that currently uses one, but it doesn't seem to be a good
solution. I included the depmap file in order to map certain artifact ids
to the proper jar files, and also to exclude a couple optional
dependencies. The problem is that when someone else tries to use this java
package they will not be able to build against it. The build will use the
package's pom file in /usr/share/maven-poms along with dependency mappings
from /usr/share/maven-fragments, but does not have access to the custom
depmap that was used when originally building the package.
Should I not use a custom depmap in this case? Is there some way to include
the mappings from my custom depmap into the package?
At this point I think I may need to edit the pom file directly instead of
using a depmap. Is that the best solution?
The specific package I'm working on is jbosscache-core if you're interested
in taking a peek!
I see in BZ 847160 that Gerard was working on this for his Summer of
Code project. It seems as though his last attempt (2012-08-21) to
package was unable to pass review. Since then there appears to be no
My packaging skills are non-existent and my maven skills are barely
enough to generate an ear and war file for JEE applications. Otherwise,
I would see if I could move this effort forward.
Is there anyone planning on finishing the m2eclipse packaging? If not,
I guess I'll just do mvn from the command line. :-(
Is http://sjsxp.java.net/ available in Fedora?
Looking with yum I can't find it but maybe as a glassfish project it is
currently embeded in openjdk 7.
If available I don't know how to check it :-m
I'm working on a OmegaT-2.6.0_04_Beta update. It has some new deps which
probably I'll talk about here too. My main concern now is related to the
jgit dependency. The package is included in Fedora but is not hosted at
/usr/share/java but at
My problem is with the launching shell script. As you can see I'm trying
to adhere to the jpackage-utils conventions but I can't find a way to put
the reference to jgit in BASE_JARS and letting build-classpath find it.
Which could be your recommendations to fix it?
Sorry, guys, due to some internal happenings we need to move the meeting
by two weeks. Since most people indicated that Tuesday is okay for them,
we select Tuesday Oct 2, 3:00 PM UTC as the final date and time. He who
has a problem with that, please stand up. We have the whole next week to

I was the groovy co-maintainer for quite a while now. The problem is
that I don't have sufficient time any more to do enough development and
work on packages I don't care much about.
The original maintainer probably has the same problem and doesn't really
care about the package, so I was the only one doing updates etc. in the
last couple of months.
I would be really glad if someone could step up and co-maintain the
package. Otherwise I will release my co-maintainership in a short while.
I'm interested in packaging XtreemFS for Fedora. They're BSD and the
project pretty good; even if it's java-based; it works fine with
openjdk. It's a EU project, it seems.
I'm not proficient in java but I have been using this one and know it well.
And, besides, the developers are very friendly and all. They, also,
have RPMs for F16:
I'd love it if somebody proficient in java would join to help co-maintain.
I will send an email just like this one to the devel list. Please,
forgive the repost.
It's hard to be free... but I love to struggle. Love isn't asked for;
it's just given. Respect isn't asked for; it's earned!
