Description of problem:
Asm jars in Fedora build are stripped of debugging information and compressed using asm's own utility. That effectively hinders the ability to debug asm code, browse their code using IDE etc. Asm maintainers has provided so called "debug" target which is not compressed and is built with full debug information on. Resulting jar, asm-debug, is part of standard asm package and is included in asm downloads. All jars in Fedora are built with this "obfuscation", which is how asm is built originally, yet asm provides also debug library, missing in Fedora. Please note that I am not talking about merely building jars with java debug info turned on - asm _compresses_ their jars as a post-processing step which makes all code browsing tools, debuggers etc. useless if asm-debug is not present.

Really good job, everyone. Keep it up. See you in next, let's say, two months, all right? :-(
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
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 prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 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 please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
