Re-Launching the Java SIG

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This past weekend I finally decided to jump off the cliff and attempt
to re-launch the Java SIG. It seems there's some interest in keeping
the Java stack maintained, it's just not focused or organized right

What we did when starting the Stewardship SIG seems to have worked out
pretty well, so I'm trying to follow in those footsteps here:

- new proper FAS / pkgdb group: java-maint-sig ("java-sig" is occupied
by an old, unused bot account)
- new private mailing list: java-maint-sig (for RHBZ bugs - so,
possibly, also CVEs - hence, private)
- tracking project on pagure: (for
maintenance scripts, tracking tickets, awesome package dashboards,

There's already a public fedora mailing list for Java (java-devel),
and and IRC channel (#fedora-java on, which we will
continue to use. Sadly, the existing wiki page for the Java SIG is
hopelessly outdated, so I'm tempted to just scrap it and point readers
to the pagure tracking project once it's set up beyond a basic README

Major upcoming projects for the "new" Java Package Maintainers group include:

- managing OpenJDK 11 / Java 11 transition for hundreds of Java
packages in fedora 33
- starting to transition well-maintained Java packages from the
Stewardship SIG back into Java SIG
- possibly porting packages from gradle to maven to fix build issues
and broken dependencies
- transitioning from old / JavaEE projects to the new ones
now under the eclipse-ee4j umbrella

I know that - among others - the PKI team, Neuro SIG, and Eclipse
maintainers depend on parts of the java stack for their packages, so I
hope that we can work together with them on these things, as well.

So, if you're interested, please consider joining this group effort.
I'll get new members set up with the FAS group / pagure project / mailing list.

Let's make this happen.
