mm.mysql-2.0.4-1 RPMs released

This version of the MM.MySQL driver is a beta release. BETA means that
while there are no known show-stopping bugs, the features of this driver
are still immature enough to cause the end-user to be exposed to some
level of risk when using the driver. You should only use BETA versions
of MM.MySQL if you are comfortable with the inherent risk involved with
using a BETA product.

MM.MySQL is an implemntation of the JDBC API for the MySQL relational
database server. It strives to conform as much as possible to the API
as specified by JavaSoft. It is known to work with many third-party
products, including Borland JBuilder, IBM Visual Age for Java, SQL/J,
the Locomotive and Symantec Visual Cafe.

eieio-0.17beta1 RPMs released

EIEIO is an Emacs lisp program which implements a controlled object-oriented
programming methodology following the CLOS standard. EIEIO also has object
browsing functions, and custom widget types. It has a fairly complete manual

EIEIO also supports the byte compiler for Emacs and XEmacs. Because of the
nature of byte compiling, EIEIO is picky about the version of emacs you are
running. It supports Emacs 19.2x+, Emacs 20.x, and XEmacs 19.1x. Byte
compiling EIEIO is VERY IMPORTANT if performance is important.... read more

jakarta-tomcat-4.0-20010523 released

Because of the requirements, I was able to change many of the *.jar files to be %{javalibdir}/*.jar - Start of
the security patches. Do not think it's a very good idea to have tomcat run as root, made changes to run tomcat as user
tomcat4. - Patch so javadoc build correctly. - Patch to remove the example context from server.xml - Latest snapshot
of tomcat requires jmx, jndi, and jsse, added them as secondary source files. - Found a couple issued with B5, went to
B6 build date 20010523 - Server layout in B5 changed to have a common/lib directory and tomcat wants that
directory, so created it. - Change the name to jakarta-tomcat to follow the official project name - Change from mkdir -p
to install -d (better platform support) - Used macros for build root, in case people wish to change it - Made permission
settings in 1 location. I personally like them in the %file section rather then specifing them with install --mode. -
Cleaned up setup, rpm is smart about unpacking files - Added Build dependencies, so check for a jdk is not necessary
- Formatting clean up. I use emacs and the shell-script major mode with rpm minor mode to keep a "standard" format.
