Description of problem:
We need to update this feature and its associated plugins to Fedora for downstream consumption in rh-eclipse47:
org.jboss.tools.maven.sourcelookup.feature 1.8.101.v20170822-1709 (or newer)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current version of sourcelookup in Koji is 1.1:
Just to clarify -- existing sourcelookup RPM packages feature: "com.ifedorenko.m2e.sourcelookup"
Was this migrated to JBoss, or is it a competing implementation?
Reading https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=505600 it seems like a competing implementation.
Are there any known problems with migrating users from one implementation to another? (I.e. will it break anyone's workspaces?)
Sounds like a question for @fbricon.
These are indeed competing bundles (which might merge eventually, but that's another story).
I had both installed simultaneously at the same time in the past, didn't see any issue.
They're different approaches: Igor's plugin doesn't load sources from p2.
So for pde dev, Fred's tools.maven.sourcelookup is better.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '28'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 28 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This package is shipping Igor's implementation, which got merged into m2e-core. After the merge this package was retired.
