Follow-up Comment #6, task #3733 (project administration):


Can you explain me how you proceeded?

As far as I'm concerned, launching the JBoss package using the version of gij
shipped with FC3 resulted in an exception.

We would like that your project run in a completely free OS; the presence of
a package at does not necessarily mean that it will run fine
with a free version of Java. Likewise, despite the fact that all Apache
projects are released under a free software license, they most often require
people to use the proprietary JDK from Sun.

Btw, whether your Java projects needs to be natively compiled or
byte-compiled (as was done for Eclipse 2) is not important; all we need is
being able to run it without using proprietary software.

Also note that Savannah supports projects of the Free Software movement, not
projects of the Open Source movement.

We are careful about ethical issues and insist on producing software that is
not dependent on proprietary software.

While Open Source as defined by its founders means something pretty close to
Free Software, it's frequently misunderstood.  For more information, please
