I've just posted ticket 521 which covers a trivial change to the guidelines:
Currently the packaging guidelines for Java packages say this under the
BuildRequires and Requires section:
Java binary packages or their dependencies MUST have Requires (generated
by RPM or manual) on:
java-headless or java-headless >= 1:minimal_required_version
However, on modern Fedora, the jpackage-utils package has been renamed to
javapackages-tools (which obsoletes and provides jpackage-utils). So,
moving forward, really the guidelines should be updates to reflect this. I
propose changing the bullet point which is currently jpackage-utils to
javapackages-tools. I haven't made a draft for this trivial one word
Please don't change this for now, until RHEL 8 is in the pipeline.
Treat 'jpackage-utils' as a meta pacakge, to ease backporting to RHEL.
