Hola Ricardo, I can join the effort. I already have a extremely custom

is not to the level of Fedora packaging standards, but I think the

Yes, I think we should start with JBoss 5.x too
The JPackage project managed to package JBoss 4.2.3 for Fedora 10.
could use those RPMs to start, but maybe we should package JBoss 5.x
How can we work together on this?
My workflow when I package something Java related with a lot of
dependencies is that I start at the top level and not thinking too much
about the dependencies. In this case I will start packaging JBoss as-is
(before adding it to Fedora repositories), it means using the already
build dependencies from the public maven repositories or bundled in the
source tar, and then replacing one by one with the required links to
Fedora packages one by one, adding what is needed to be added to Fedora
or requesting upgrades to the packages needed
