It should be in dead.package in the devel branch, if it was retired
No dead.package file. I do see that the last time the spec was updated
minus mass rebuilds was 2008. So it does need a re-review before being
unorphaned. That's a reason for it to be retired atm.
So to unretire:
Check out the package using:
cvs co -d :ext:USERNAME@cvs.fedoraproject.org/cvs/pkgs jna-posix
Update the spec file to make sure it meets current packaging guidelines.
Submit for a review following:
When done, open a cvsadmin request (and mention that it's a review
of a retired package). Then you'll be assigned as owner.
