Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1017400
nonresponsive package maintainer for Scala; please respond
Last modified: 2015-02-17 12:35:44 EST
Description of problem:
There are no Scala packages for F19 or later versions, either because of FTBFS issues or broken dependencies.
There are several issues preventing a straightforward build, including the absence of several test-suite dependencies and interface incompatibilities between current Scala releases (2.10.x) and contemporary JLine releases (v2.6+).
I have done some work to address these issues and get Scala building again (please see the v2.10.2-1 tag of https://github.com/willb/scala-packaging ). It would be excellent if one of the existing Scala maintainers could incorporate these fixes and resume regular updates.
(See also the SRPM available from http://freevariable.com/scala )
Due the information provided in this bug report, I was able to create
an update to scala-2.10.3 for Rawhide, F20 and F10. As a co-maintainer
of this package I have submitted updates for F19 and F20 to bodhi.
This is my second attempt to contact Geoff about this package.
I would like to ask about the state of the non-responsive maintainer process,
which was initiate by this bug. I may be nice, if we have an ordinary
primary maintainer for the scala package.
At last thsi is a pring to geoff to send us any sinn of response.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's

more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
