Similarly to my colleague, Mr Kruska, I, too, study Masaryk University in Brno, currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in computer science, and I, too, have recently joined Red Hat as an Associate Software Engineer in the Base OS team and as such I'll try my best to help you guys with some of the python packages. :)
It's very important to update gnuchess to version 6.0.3 and xboard to
version 4.7.0 in Rawhide. These are packages from GNU and they use
artificial intelligence and they are include in Fedora Spin Gamaes.
I've just submitted my first package so here is some basic
info about myself.
I am student of Masaryk University in Brno, currently
studying for my master's degree. As you might see from
my email address I've been recently hired into Red Hat
(BaseOS team) as an associate software engineer. My job
is going to be python related stuffs in Fedora (I'll
do my best, I promise :) ).
I am glad to be here and I am looking forward to cooperate
with you guys.
I'm trying to update JMol to the version 13 series, but this requires
the introducion of a couple other packages in Fedora. However, I've run
into problems with jspecview  - for some reason I can't get it to
build a proper jar file, some classes always end up missing.
This is a rather odd problem, as if I build the thing in Eclipse as
upstream does (still using ant!), I get a working jar file.
I hope someone can help me in getting the package to build. The
instructions sent by upstream for building the package in Eclipse are
below (you need to install eclipse-subclipse).
First, you need to work within Eclipse. All Jmol/JSpecView development
is done in Eclipse. There is information on how to set that up in the
Jmol wiki: http://wiki.jmol.org/index.php/Eclipse I suppose it is
possible to do all this without Eclipse, but neither Robert nor I can
help you if you do not use Eclipse.
Once you have Eclipse working:
1) Check out https://svn.code.sf.net/p/jspecview/svn/dev2/JSpecView
into a workspace as project JSpecView.
2) Check out https://svn.code.sf.net/p/jspecview/svn/dev2/JSpecViewLib
into the same workspace as project JSpecViewLib.
All building is done through ANT tasks. I believe you must first build
JSpecViewLib, then JSpecView.
