Patches are probably needed because Lucene and JavaCC dependencies are

try to carry only the latest version of libraries in order to avoid a

Packages should be patched such that they work with the version
available in Fedora. Updating a project to the latest version of one
of its dependencies are patches that are good candidates to be sent
So when I do a dnf search Lucene I don't get any version number in the
pckage name, what's the fedora way to know which version of Lucene is
being currently packaged ? (reading the spec file ?) , I now know what
the dependancies for Derby are in terms of version numbers?
