Could you please let me which packages didn't have source, and which
ones couldn't compile? Chances are they are things that I am
maintaining in experimental. For several things that were used cvs /
svn checkouts, I was hosting the files on a server I had access to
when I was in school, but have since graduated, and they finally got
around to nuking my webspace and account. Hopefully I will be able to
find an alternative sometime soon.

I'm using hibernate-2 on a project I'm currently working on. Might
want to give the official tree version a shot until I can get all the
tarballs back online.

I haven't been working on it recently. I came up to a stopping point
as I mention below. Will probably pick up the torch again once I wrap
up some non-Gentoo projects and make some more progress on other
Gentoo things, such as finish my developer quizes ;)

As I mentioned, works for me. But please do share what packages are
giving you problems, and the errors that you are getting.

The splitting up of JBoss is mostly done. There's only one or two
modules left to be packaged, but I kind of came to a stand still. It
came down to where one module couldn't find some static utility
functions, but I couldn't figure out for the life of me why they
couldn't be found because they appeared to be on the classpath.
Once those remaining modules are complete, then the last step would be
to put them together to resemble a normal JBoss installation. This
would involve either:
- Use the build.xml, by making all sorts of symlinks to the things it
would expect to be around
- Put the things together in the ebuild.
It would generally be better to use upstream provided method, but the
problem is that ant does a lot of copying, and ant isn't know how to
The problem with putting it together ourselves would be making sure it
is put together properly, and would be a PITA to maintain.

Another good place to look is on #gentoo-java.
