Java Package Maintainers SIG

This is the tracking project for the Java / Java Package Maintainers SIG.

NOTE: The page for the Java SIG on the fedoraproject Wiki is still outdated. Some of the valid information will probably be moved here.

Mailing List

The old java-devel mailing list will continue to get used for general Java development on fedora, and the java-maint-sig list is associated with BugZilla and can be used for conversations internal to the SIG.

List of currently maintained packages

The dynamically updated list of packages currently maintained by @java-maint-sig and its members is available on

Package status is being tracked manually in a file on pagure, for the time being.

Please document packaging workarounds in each package's .spec file, and make a note of them in the workarounds folder, so they don't remain undocumented or get forgotten.

procedure for adding new packages

  • check for the correct maven artifact coordinates (if applicable)
  • check / maven central if package information is correct
  • check if the upstream project still exists, and check the latest version
  • set up anitya for the package (if this was not already done)
  • enable koschei builds for the package (rawhide only is fine, for now)
  • document packaging workarounds that are applied in the package
  • add the @java-maint-sig group with admin access
  • set BugZilla assignee overrides to @java-maint-sig
