In a nutshell this would be:
1. Check that your spec file follows guidelines (see below)
2. Make sure that all your dependencies are in Fedora. If they
aren't you'll have to package them too.
3. Upload spec + SRPM of your Apache TomEE package somewhere
4. Open a RHBZ asking for a review
5. Get it reviewed
6. Ask on your bug for dist-git repos
7. Git push, and build the package in Koji
Some of those steps should be easy since you already have a spec/SRPM to
Since this would be a Java package, please follow these guidelines in
If you use Eclipse there is tooling available which should help with
this process. The tool is called Fedora Packager for Eclipse, which is
an alternative to the fedpkg CLI:
This document also has pointers to all the steps you need to follow.
