Java had its own way of doing things which didn't match how Fedora wanted things packaged.. and it took a LOT of work to unbundle, unhook, and clean up. Over time, the number of people who a) want to work on that and b) get the constant 'oooh yuck its java.. why would anyone work on that?' took its toll and people left. The same thing is happening in most other SIG's.. it is thankless work especially when people are always good about telling how it should have been done instead. The number of people active in them gets smaller over time with everyone else thinking 'oh I don't need to worry about it there is a SIG to take care of this.. when it turns out that it really is just 1 person still showing up.' > > I think the bigger question here is what is going to happen with the > Java SIG? > > > > In general, what is the situation of Java in Fedora? > I regret having to say this, but I think it's inevitable: Due to the > Java-"modularization" activities, Java in Fedora is going to be a matter > of the past, soon. > > Modularization is more like the dust particle hitting hyper saturated solution. You are getting large amounts of participate falling out.. but the 'problem' was there before just hidden in plain site. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2nJybaKOP0 > Ralf > _______________________________________________ > devel mailing list -- email@example.com > To unsubscribe send an email to devel-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org > Fedora Code of Conduct: https://getfedora.org/code-of-conduct.html > List Guidelines: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines > List Archives: > https://firstname.lastname@example.org > -- Stephen J Smoogen.
