About a year ago, I suggested that BedeWork (http://bedework.org

to package it with some help. I unfortunately ran out of time. I now have time to package
it and hopefully maintain the package. Unfortunately, I haven't written an Java code
in a decade or so. I have never messed with Java packages. I also have no experience
maintaining for Fedora.
The problems I have:
This package has a bunch of property files that you have to edit before you build/package
the program. (http://www.bedework.org/downloads/3.5/BedeworkManual-3.5.pdf#page=18
include database names, locations, user/passwords for the database, etc. I do not know if
this is normal or not. I do not know how to package this, how to suggest people customize
this information, etc.
Usually, I provide edited copied of these files in the src.rpm and copy
them into place.
I have no clue about any of the build systems in Fedora, so I will
need help with this as well.
This looks to be a pretty tough one to cut your teeth on :-). There
look to be one missing dependency as well: avalon.jar (jakarta
Excalibur?), which could be pretty major.
Also, the build system seems to depend on downloading required jar files
from the bedework servers. This will need to get changed.
