No offense but this is quite overkill. The normal upstream package from sf.net only requires 1/10 of the size that gets pulled in by Fedora 18. I recall that I did not depend on eclipse platform when using freemind in Fedora 17.
The default freemind install is around 7.2 mb while this requires nearly 70 mb including a whole IDE (platform, architecture).
I was wondering why I needed eclipse at all (not to mention that you can't even use it in this condition to create some java projects - besides that I use netbeans). I initially thought this was an overall requirement for the sync-distribution. But this seems not to be the case and only there because the small java jar file named freemind.jar pulls in groovy pulls in eclipse-platform.
Can this be changed in one of the upcoming versions (... and I don't mean Fedora 19 here).
I was on vacation during the last days and will try to look into this issue in the coming days.
I think I identified the dependency chain and asked the other packagers if we could "break" this dep chain. 
I'll keep you updated if we make any progress.
In Fedora 18 xbean requires whole Eclipse Platform instead of Eclipse Equinox. It was fixed in Fedora 19 in xbean-3.12-3:
* Mon Oct 22 2012 Mikolaj Izdebski <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 3.12-3
- Replace eclipse-rcp requires with eclipse-equinox-osgi
- Reenable Equinox
I'll fix xbean package in Fedora 18.
Fixed in xbean-3.12-4
xbean-3.12-4.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
Works perfectly. Thank you!
xbean-3.12-4.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
