Pre-Review Request: saxpath - Simple API for XPath
Last modified: 2009-08-20 10:39:04 EDT
Package needed for Maven 2.0.8
Spec URL: http://people.fedoraproject.org/~fnasser/saxpath.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.fedoraproject.org/~fnasser/saxpath-1.0-1.3.jpp6.src.rpm
The SAXPath project is a Simple API for XPath. SAXPath is analogous to SAX
in that the API abstracts away the details of parsing and provides a simple
event based callback interface.
SRPM URL: http://people.fedoraproject.org/~fnasser/saxpath-1.0-1.4.jpp6.src.rpm
Has a fix to the License as suggested by Toshio.
I have only one item that needs a bit of feedback for pre-review:
- please add a URL for the POM file; is it acceptably licensed?
Hum, I really don't know if anyone ever thought of attributing a license to a POM.
incantation is a standard template for a maven coordinate, I don't think one can attribute an IP claim to it.
As to the URL, there is none. In this specific case this is a minimal POM created for this RPM.
spot, can we get confirmation that .pom files are exempt from licensing and URL checks? This will be an issue for a lot of these packages.
Just for clarification, is a POM equivalent to a spec file for java?

It's like a spec file for maven builds.
It would be nice if these were collected in a central upstream location, perhaps a git repo for "java POMs". From a legal perspective, I doubt these are copyrightable works, unless they have much more complexity than Fernando has illustrated.
So, for licensing purposes, I don't see any reason to worry about the POM files.

I *think* (this is from hearsay) that they're all in the maven's repo upstream. But I really have no idea.
