Review Request: tanukiwrapper
Last modified: 2011-05-24 03:34:20 EDT
I would like to maintain this package. It has already been in Fedora, but has been orphaned and since last commit passed more then 3 month. Therefore according the policy it need to go through review again:
This is the version of tanukiwrapper which already has been in Fedora (last
update on July 2010). No changes from me.
I wanted to package latest version of Tanukiwrapper, but it changed license,
which is non-free:
This is most probably non-intentional change and upstream may be willing to
release it under some free license, so I contacted them If they are willing to do
some change toward free license. But so far I wanted to get into Fedora version 3.2.3 which has been release under BSD license.
Given your introduction to this package and it's current state do you feel
tanukiwrapper is well maintained?
Did you hear from upstream?

There are a number of problems with the package and it can't go in Fedora in this way:
* you have to drop gcj
* javadoc post/postun should be removed
* jars should be installed unversioned
* javadoc directory should be unversioned
* file permissions on doc suppackage are not defaults for no reason
* missing requires on jpackage-utils in javadoc but it installs in a directory owned by it
See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Java for details.
I thought it will be much easier. I'm giving it up for now.
If anybody stumble upon this bz - see:
for free fork of tanukiwrapper.
