> Subject: [fedora-java] Removing depmap support in Fedora 23
> I hereby announce that in Fedora 23 XMvn will remove support for depmaps
> and depmap fragments.
> For those lucky that don't know what depmaps are: Depmaps are legacy
> files, which used to be installed with Java packages to enable Maven to
> resolve artifacts. Depmaps were replaced with a new metadada format in
> Fedora 21.
> In Fedora 21 all standard tooling (including %add_maven_depmap) have
> been modified to produce the new metadata format. Fedora 21 and 22 have
> deprecated, read-only support for depmaps for compatibility reasons, but
> this code will be removed in Fedora 23. Once that happens, artifacts
> installed in packages that still use depmaps will stop being resolved by
> Great majority of packages were already migrated to the new metadata
> format. Most of those that were not are FTBFS packages (with .fc20 dist
> tag) that couldn't be rebuilt in mass rebuild. Rebuilding them before
> the above XMvn change lands in Fedora 23 should "fix" them.
