Sorry to drag up an old thread, and also for replying to myself. I've
been talking to upstream about the current state of upstream
maintenance over the last few days. The team at University of Victoria
have created an official upstream git repo:
https://github.com/mdadams/jasper where the maintainer will review
open patches and merge them with master, cutting a new release when
required. I've opened up pull requests for all the patches in Fedora
that still apply.

I still thing the preferred option is "just use openjpeg" but this at
least gets things moving in the right direction.
