Description Rafael H. Schloming 2007-02-02 17:50:56 UTC
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/rafaels/specs/plexus-cdc-1.0-0.a4.2jpp.spec
SRPM URL: ftp://jpackage.hmdc.harvard.edu/JPackage/1.7/generic/SRPMS.free/plexus-cdc-1.0-0.a4.2jpp.src.rpm
Description: The Plexus project seeks to create end-to-end developer tools for
writing applications. At the core is the container, which can be
embedded or for a full scale application server. There are many
reusable components for hibernate, form processing, jndi, i18n,
velocity, etc. Plexus also includes an application server which
is like a J2EE application server, without all the baggage.

Javadoc for plexus-cdc.

$ rpmlint plexus-cdc-1.0-0.1.a4.2jpp.1.src.rpm 
W: plexus-cdc non-standard-group Development/Java

- lines 165-170 are duplicates, should be removed:
%if %{gcj_support}
if [ -x %{_bindir}/rebuild-gcj-db ]

As discussed regarding a different package, I'm including the comments about
rpmlint and long lines just for the sake of completeness, they may be safely
ignored -- ie, I will mark as fedora-review+ as soon as the duplicate lines are

Comment 3 Tania Bento 2007-02-22 16:43:44 UTC
The duplicated lines have been removed.  Here are the links to the updated spec
file and source rpm:
