Hi Mathieu,

the jai-core sources are available at
but because of their current licensing (JDL, JRL) they aren't
distributable even as is in a normal SRPM.

Therefore, what I am proposing, is a kind of "nosrc-src.rpm", i.e. like
a normal .src.rpm but containing a source-fetch script instead of a

Of course, any user or user organization may also cache these sources
locally, once fetched, at their own risk.

Attached please find the spec file I have been using. No, I'll better
attach the "nosrc-src" rpm, as it is light weight...

There is still a bit missing from the resulting binary rpms:
A trigger is needed in order to have these files linked
into /usr/lib/jvm/java*/jre/lib/ext/ on each install or upgrade of some
