Description Mikolaj Izdebski 2012-10-12 13:20:50 EDT
jlex isn't currently maintained by upstream. jflex is compatible with jlex and supports many additional features. I believe jlex should be deprecated.

Currently only one package (jexcelapi) build-depends on jlex and this
dependency is redundaty and can be simply removed.
Comment 1 Mat Booth 2012-10-21 15:53:42 EDT
I agree, I will retire this package starting with F19.
Comment 2 Mat Booth 2012-10-21 16:27:50 EDT
Package is retired in pkgdb, ticket raised with rel-eng to block it from f19 onwards: https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/5371
