Ticket #1094 (closed maintainer issue: fixed)
tomcat6 deprecation (fasttrack)
|Reported by:||sochotni||Owned by:|
tomcat6 hasn't been updated in a long time (since June 2012), it has several security bugs which should be addressed etc. With introduction of automatic requires in Java land it's also causing some FTBFSs (mixing of tomcat-7.x and tomcat6 artifacts). Migration of tomcat6 packages is mostly trivial.
As noted in devel ML I would like to possibly speed up the orphaning process in rawhide. I am in contact with few more people interested in tomcat6 in older Fedoras and if David doesn't get back soon(ish), we'll do the updates in F17/F18. But tomcat6 in rawhide should go buh-bye ASAP.
