Pre-Review Request: javacvs - Netbeans CVS module and library
Last modified: 2009-09-14 05:02:02 EDT
Package needed for Maven 2.0.8
Spec URL: http://people.fedoraproject.org/~fnasser/javacvs.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.fedoraproject.org/~fnasser/javacvs-5.0-5.jpp6.src.rpm
The module provides UI frontend to the CVS in the Netbeans
IDE. Just now there is work in progress addressing project
and typical workflow integration.
Supported commands are: commit, update, add, remove, tag,
checkout, import, history, diff, status, log, annotate.
The library implements a CVS client protocol in Java. It
allows to access CVS servers without setting up an external
cvs program. It's base for the module.
- I generated a source tarball using the instructions (which are missing a tar command) and although the md5sums don't match, the contents are the same
- the license is fine, but please use SPL as the table at  states
- the pom file matches what it says in the URL
- none of the other XML source files appear to exist upstream anymore ... can we get them from somewhere else?
I forgot to post a link to the licensing table:
The JAR that ends up being included in javacvs-lib contains the exact same classes that are in the file from netbeans-ide10 (F-11; netbeans-ide11 is in rawhide), /usr/share/netbeans/ide10/modules/org-netbeans-lib-cvsclient.jar
Other than some minor manifest updates to the JAR (un-related to the maven stack, I presume), I think we'll just need to add the javacvs POM to the netbeans SRPM and get it included in netbeans-ide10 (or 11). I'll work on this.
We're just going to use the netbeans JAR instead. Closing.
Drop review flag. This is part of netbeans-ide package.
