Description Richard Fearn 2021-06-01 20:25:26 UTC
FindBugs upstream has been dead since 2016 and I would like to retire it from Fedora [1].

libidn currently has this dependency:

  BuildRequires: mvn(

This seems to be because the libidn POM in java/ has this dependency:


That dependency can be downloaded here:

It provides classes in these packages:

  * edu.umd.cs.findbugs.annotations
  * javax.annotation (and subpackages)
  * net.jcip.annotations

All these packages contain the word "annotation". I can't see any reference to these packages in the libidn Java code:

  $ fedpkg sources
  $ tar -xf libidn-1.37.tar.gz
  $ cd libidn-1.37
  $ fgrep annotation $(find -name "*.java") | wc -l

I think it's safe to remove the findbugs annotations dependency from libidn.

For reference the findbugs annotation dependency was added to the libidn POM in this commit:;a=commitdiff;h=2dfa483b59a8fe890553861ea0b04f594720bccc
