Are you using/running Eclipse or Tomcat or OpenJDK or Netbeans or IntelliJ Idea or Dogtag PKI or 389 Directory Server or Jetty or even OpenOffice.org?
Isn't that a huge list already? Should I continue listing the upstream projects that we(active Fedora Java packagers) are involved into or even leading the developement?
If you are Fedora project needs you - NOW!!!
To help us keeping and developing these products.
There are 26 orphaned but critical Java packages:
classworlds- mbooth dom4j- jwrdegoede
isorelax- mbooth jlex- mbooth
relaxngDatatype- mbooth tomcat6- dknox ws-jaxme- jwrdegoede
Now is the time to stand up and pay your duty to the community by taking a package or two. It may look a small step but every time someone takes a package and do the small work needed to maintain it (most packages will took you just a few hours monthly or even quarterly) I have the time to look at/fix one more bug.
Consider joining and helping even if you are not using Fedora packages but you are using Java software downloaded from upstream on Fedora system. You will save time to the upstream developers - they/we :) are here.
If you are already a Fedora packager just get them in pkgdb if you are not but you want to join please contact me.
We are waiting for you!
P.S. See Bill's mail with more details about the dependency tree here.
