I am working on updating Jython to version 2.7.0 alpha2, but I am having significant difficulties with getting the thing to work (unbundling, internal changes in java stack etc.).

Comment 3 Tomas 'Sheldon' Radej 2013-04-22 08:07:29 UTC
Update: Jython still depends on PyXML (which was removed from Fedora). I'll try talking to upstream to convert to Python's internal xml module.

Comment 4 Jerry James 2014-02-19 20:50:41 UTC
I'm attempting to package a project (jReality) that depends on jython.  I don't know what the minimum version it needs is, but it bundles 2.5.3.  Attempting to build with the current Fedora version results in a failed build due to undefined symbols.

I'm motivated to help move this forward.  What can I do to help out?

Comment 5 Tomas 'Sheldon' Radej 2014-02-20 12:41:18 UTC
Hi. Since Jython was so badly broken when I tried to repair it a year ago, I let it slide out of my field of view, sorry for not changing the bug status back to NEW. 

Please, talk to the package owner, Alex Kurtakov (akurtako@redhat.com), about updating this package. I can't tell you much now, as I moved away from Java a while ago and I'd have to get back into the loop, which is unfortunately currently impossible for me time-wise. The only thing I remember is that there is an old branch in dist git that Andrew Overholt made in order to attempt to convert Jython to 2.5.2 RC3.

In the meantime, I'm releasing this bug (but I'll stay on CC).

New version of fetch-jython.sh

Thanks for the information, Tomas.  Here is one thing I can do to help.  I'm attaching a new version of fetch-jython.sh to build tar balls out of the new Mercurial repository instead of the defunct subversion repository.

Comment 7 Alexander Kurtakov 2014-02-20 15:18:08 UTC
Thanks Jerry,
I'll try to look at it tomorrow to see what's current state and will write here.

Comment 8 Alexander Kurtakov 2014-03-06 19:27:34 UTC
fetch script pushed with a bit of delay. Let's see when next action will be.

Comment 9 Alexander Kurtakov 2014-06-12 09:04:48 UTC
