So, there's apparently an issue with objectweb-asm{,4}.noarch versions in RHEL7, in that those versions don't support Java 8 byte code, so I get errors like inĀ

objectweb-asm 5 does support Java 8 byte code (as well as previous versions), but it's not packaged for EPEL7. The current objectweb-asm in Fedora is version 5.

How does one go about packaging version 5 for EPEL7? Should I use the epel7 branch of objectweb-asm to create an objectweb-asm5 package for EPEL7? Or, should I fork the objectweb-asm repo and submit a new package review for objectweb-asm5?
