Upstream of jakarta-commons-httpclient deprecated it long time ago. Currently all libraries should use httpcomponents-client/server dependencies. Work with upstream to update dependency to new version.
maven-javadoc-plugin does not seem to depend on jakarta-commons-httpclient
$ sudo repoquery --whatrequires jakarta-commons-httpclient | grep maven
Is this bug still relevant?
It's again (build)required in rawhide:
$ repoquery --repoid=rawhide --whatrequires jakarta-commons-httpclient | grep maven
We need a tracking bug...it seems we have more and more packages pulling in old dependencies.
You are correct of course. I have written a patch and submitted it upstream for consideration:
Closing as fixed upstream. Path was committed to upstream's source control in r1463966. This change will be available in the next release of maven-javadoc-plugin.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
