There is an explanation in comment#5 here:

From the same comment it looks like this will not be fixed until FC6.
The geronimo-specs package in FC=development is still at 1.0M2.
The new geronimo-specs 1.0 package from JPackage will build on Fedora
(for the most part) by calling `javac' and `javadoc' directly. This
avoids having to bring in maven, saxon, and the many other dependencies
the JPackage package has, and will provide soem much needed API's.
Hopefully Gary or someone else is willing to take a look at this. This
will bring the FC version up to date and at the same time make it
compatible with JPackage.
The only issue I know of is to make sure that the classpathx packages
which provide jta and jaf alternatives work with the geronimo API's of
the same name.
