bouncycastle package, which is required by several Java
packages, has no maintainer for half a year . Orphan
packages are automatically deprecated before new release
is branched. Deprecated packages are blocked from release.
If this happens then many Java packages may break and to
fix this a full package review and bodhi update may be
needed. Because of that I would suggest that someone takes
ownership of bouncycastle (I especially have in mind
maintainers of dependent packages).
Currently bouncycastle is required by the following packages:
Since FPC approved this change for us, I've gone ahead and started running our
conversion script. Over the course of next few hours ALL maven packages should
receive a commit message with updated BR. There will be no builds done by our
script, we'll wait for mass rebuild (or you can build yourself).

I received the following bug report, which is mainly saying, that an
average freemind install is a bit too big, because it installs a lot of
eclipse* stuff. 
A short analysis shows that the eclipse stuff is pulled in by the
freemind <- groovy <- jansi, jansi-native <- hawtjni <- xbean <- eclipse*
I just wanted to ask, if it's possible to split that chain somewhere and
make it a bit easier to install freemind.
Thanks a lot,
First of all, I'm sorry that I forgot to send this e-mail last week. The fault's all mine.
Tomorrow (Feb 5) at 4 PM UTC there will be a SIG meeting at #fedora-meeting channel at freenode.
The subject will be mostly the mass rebuild Stanislav Ochotnicky wrote a mail about here (on java-devel), and a great simplification of Java packaging in Fedora.
Feel free to comment or ask questions.
