With upcoming version of javapackages-tools there will be changes to
- It is considered deprecated. It was deprecated upstream long ago, but
I think we've never sent an announcement. The replacement is
%mvn_artifact + %mvn_install. For porting your specfiles, please refer
to the guide at . If you have any questions about porting, we'll be
happy to answer them on #fedora-java (we = msimacek and mizdebsk) or via
- It will still be available for few months, but was moved to
javapackages-local subpackage. If you don't want to port just yet,
you'll need to make sure that you have BuildRequires: javapackages-local
in your spec. If you already have BR: maven-local or ivy-local or
gradle-local, you don't need to do anything as those pull in
javapackages-local as a dependency. The reason for the move was
reduction of dependencies (mainly python) of the main package, which
gets installed as a runtime dependency of all java packages.
- This will be for rawhide only and won't go to <=f26.
I'm Prakash, a Computer Applications student at Christ University,
Bangalore, India. I have been contributing to Fedora QA for a year now
under the mentorship of Sumantro Mukherjee and also learning python. I look
forward to contributing to Fedora devel.
P.S. It would be great if someone can mentor me as i am new to making code
contributions to projects. I am familiar with git, github and python and
will not bother you too much.

apart from changing license from "LGPLv3+ or GPLv2+" to "LGPLv2+".
We relax the license so that the software can be used by more
