Comment 1 Gary Benson 2005-07-21 14:39:51 UTC
struts and tomcat5 are missing vital bits on those platforms because of this.
mx4j has no documentation either, but that's hardly in the same league.

Comment 2 Gary Benson 2005-07-21 16:34:23 UTC
The xmlvalidate task fails as well, for what is probably the same reason.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 16:15:32 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 00:12:54 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
