I am currently maintaining freeminda and various other related

This is not a problem with packages where you have an easy upstream, which
is not the case for most of my Java packages.
Therefore I am not going to have the time, to put enough effort into
packaging up the new version of freemind and adopt all the changes upstream
made to plugins and various other parts of the package.
This is why I am looking for someone who would like to take over these
packages and work on them. I am not going to orphan them straight away but
if I am not able to update to the latest stable upstream version there's
not a lot of sense in keeping it in fedora.
I hope someone will help me to keep freemind in fedora,
Well, ok so I had to do it on my own. ;-)
I finally managed to get freemind 1.0.0 to compile and obviously the new
dependencies allow the compilation as well.
Still it's not really usable and I will have to work on smoothing the rough
edges, but I see some possibilities to bring all that to fedora.
JMapViewer and Jortho need a review and I will submit them as soon as
possible, so that the new freemind release can enter fedora as soon as
All the best,
