This is the main page for the AutoQA Packaging Activity Day, which is a FAD focused on identifying and packaging remaining build dependencies for Echo-package-16px.pnggwt. The gwt package is a build dependency for Autotest.


The primary purpose for the event is gather Fedora packaging and java experts to help ...

  1. Identify all remaining unpackaged build dependencies
  2. Package unpackaged build dependencies
  3. Convert existing JPackages to packages acceptable for Fedora

In addition, we will attempt to complete the following secondary goals as time allows:

  1. Start package submission and review according to Package Review Process
  2. Update existing Package-x-generic-16.pnggwt and Package-x-generic-16.pngautotest packages as needed
