Hello,

I also need twitter4j to get packaged for my pet project (which is
described in #622324.

I'm willing to help if needed, but I'd prefer avoiding any duplicate
effort. How far did you manage to get for now?

Thanks for your time,
Mt.

Hi,

I have done some packaging work. I have to say that maven is quite a
PITA, but I managed to get a working package. 

At the moment I'm quite puzzled by the documentation generation:
everything goes into javadoc .jar files, and it seems to confuse
maven-debian-helper (it generates an empty -doc package). This should
just be a matter of tweaking.

I'll upload my work ASAP on the pkg-java git repository and let you
know.

Thanks,

Subject: Issue in packaging twitter4j: json is not free
Date: Thu, 7 Jul 2011 11:55:35 +0200
Hello, 

I progressed a bit on the packaging of twitter4j in debian, and I'm
stuck on a problem: it includes some code of Json, which licence
states that it shall not be used to do evil, only good. According to
#585468 for example, this is considered non-free in debian, and cannot
be uploaded as is.

For that reason, the json code of twitter4j should be removed and
replaced by a free implementation, such as 

libjson-simple-java - Simple, lightweight and efficient JSON toolkit
  for Java 
libjackson-json-java - streaming fast powerful standard conformant
  json processor in java
libjettison-java - collection of StAX parsers and writers for JSON
libjson-java - library for transforming Java objects and XML to JSON
  and back again
libxstream-java - Java library to serialize objects to XML and back
  again


This is however probably too much work for me considered the use I
planned for the library. Since I'm also upstream of JLM that currently
depends on twitter4j, I'll probably modify JLM so that it uses
status.net instead of twitter.

Anyway. I just pushed into the git the current state of the packaging,
in the hope that the next one wanting to package this software will
find it useful.

git+ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-java/twitter4j.git

Thanks for the fish,
Mt.

Hi,

As Twitter4J seems to be non-dfsg-free, and ReplicatorG doesn't really
need it, I'm dropping the ITP.

Thanks to Martin Quinson for his work on the packaging, which is still
available in the pkg-java git.

Cheers,
