About a year ago, I suggested that BedeWork (http://bedework.org
) be included. I offered
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.
This program also requires JBoss or Tomcat (maybe there are others that will work). Since
I do not see JBoss in Fedora, Tomcat would be fine. I have not experience with this. It
would be nice if a Tomcat person can help me with documentation on how to get this working
and to use AD (Kerberos [SPNEGO/GSSAPI] and LDAP) for the authentication and user/group
information as well.
I have a few packages that I have not yet submitted that I have packaged. These include
PyKota (and its dependencies), DSPAM, and C-ICAP (not yet ready as I have some code I am
writing that will be turned over before I submit this package).
I have no clue about any of the build systems in Fedora, so I will need help with this as
