#6 Identify packages with dead upstream projects
Opened 2 years ago by decathorpe. Modified 2 years ago

I'd like to collect a list of packages where the upstream project has ostensibly died or vanished. I would maintain a fork of those projects, so we have a place where we can "upstream" our fixes and changes, maybe collaborate with OpenSUSE packagers, and don't have to cargo-cult with downstream patches forever.


Candidates for dead projects (covers packages currently maintained by both @java-maint-sig and @stewardship-sig):

New status:

  • geronimo-*: either updated to Eclipse EE4J sources + renamed or dropped
  • glassfish-*: either updated to Eclipse EE4J sources + renamed or dropped
  • jvnet-parent: orphaned, dependencies on it can just be removed
  • sonatype-oss-parent: orphaned, dependencies on it can just be removed
  • spec-version-maven-plugin: updated to Java EE / Eclipse EE4J sources
  • plexus-ant-factory: orphaned
  • plexus-component-factories-pom: orphaned

These are no longer required since I disabled the unused ant scripting support in maven-plugin-tools.
