Subject: Status of JSS in Fedora?
From: Margaret Lum <mlum redhat com>
Date: Wed, 09 May 2007 19:51:02 -0500

Hi folks,

I've noticed this package has been collecting dust for awhile.  My team
needs this in our first open source release of our product (Certificate
System), and I'm working on a parallel port (from internal source) to
the build system here @RH.  If this is not the most productive forum for
such approval, please point me in the right direction.  This package was
already submitted, but it's almost 2 months past the initial file date.

The issue that needs both resolution and an immediate updated status is:


 Bugzilla Bug 230262
 <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=230262>: Review
 Request: jss - Java Security Services (JSS)

Thank you for your time and understanding.


As discussed in the past on fedora-extras-list and other mediums, it may be impossible to ship this in Fedora or RHEL signed because that is in conflict with our licenses and guarantees of reproducibility.

This idea was the closest even vaguely plausible way to get it into Fedora... however it seems to be both technically impossible and not good enough to bring it into compliance with our rules. Unless somebody else has a new idea, I don't know how we can proceed on this.

Red Hat (the company) could (pending legal approval) choose to proceed with this as part of an internal product. But as the rules stand today, Fedora cannot ship this signed.
