Scala package owner unresponsive

I have made a spec file for Scala 2.10.1 that successfully builds under mock on F19; it is available here:
I had to make a new patch to account for interface changes in JLine 2.7, disable optimization (due to a known bug in the Scala optimizer), and disable several tests that failed spuriously (as far as I can tell). But I think the package should be at least as good as the one we had before.
Jochen Schmitt, are you willing to update the build in F19 and rawhide with these fixes?
