Your package (findbugs) Fails To Install in Fedora 35:

can't install findbugs:

Comment 1 Richard Fearn 2021-06-01 21:35:02 UTC
FindBugs upstream has been dead since 2016 and I would like to retire it from Fedora [1].

There are 3 packages that have a build-time dependency on FindBugs; I've filed bugs against all of them:

* libidn:
* nom-tam-fits:
* ongres-scram:

There's a PR linked from each bug that removes the FindBugs dependency from each of those packages.


Comment 2 Richard Fearn 2021-07-02 18:11:20 UTC
findbugs-contrib has now been retired:

A PR that removes FindBugs packages from comps has been merged:

All subpackages of a package against which this bug was filled are now installable or removed from Fedora 35.

Thanks for taking care of it!

Comment 5 Richard Fearn 2021-08-04 17:53:04 UTC
Final update on this...

The Fedora mappings for findbugs and findbugs-contrib have been removed from Anitya:
* findbugs:
* findbugs-contrib:

findbugs-contrib was dropped from rawhide:

eclipse-findbugs / findbugs / findbugs-bcel were dropped from rawhide:

All four are blocked in Koji:

  $ koji list-pkgs --owner=richardfearn --tag=f35 --show-blocked | fgrep findbugs
  findbugs-contrib        f35                                      richardfearn    [BLOCKED]
  eclipse-findbugs        f35                                      richardfearn    [BLOCKED]
  findbugs                f35                                      richardfearn    [BLOCKED]

I think I've followed all the steps in:
