Description Mary Ellen Foster 2009-11-02 13:01:03 EST
Spec URL: http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~mef3/review/jrexx.spec SRPM URL: http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~mef3/review/jrexx-1.1.1-5.fc12.src.rpm Description: jrexx is a powerful easy-to-use regular expression API for textual pattern matching. Technically jrexx uses a minimized deterministic FSA (finite state automaton) and compiles the textual representation of the regular expression into such an automaton. Besides the usual pattern matching functionality, jrexx provides an introspection API for exploration of the automaton's structure by 'states' and 'transitions'. Since the automaton is deterministic and minimized the pattern matching alogorithm is extremly fast (compared to the java regular expression API in JDK1.4) and works with huge patterns and input texts. Since FSA can be handled as sets, jrexx also offers all basic set operations for complement, union, intersection and difference, which is not provided by other regex implementations (as far as we know). This package was imported from JPackage

Is this an attempt to bring the jrexx package back into Fedora? It's dead.package'd in devel but it's present in F-11. There seem to be some interesting differences between your submission and what's currently in the shipping distros. At least the scriptlets and the installation of the pom files come to mind. For the sake of any reviewers you may get, you should at least comment on the fact that the package is already in the distro in a different form and describe any differences between your package and what they'll see if they check it out from our CVS.

It's been over a year since I posed that question and there was never any response. I'm just going to close this.
