Fedora RPM package

My name is Jonny Heggheim and I am a packager for Fedora[1].

I would like to include OpenJFX in our official Fedora repository to
make it possible to redistribute packages that depend on JavaFX.

There have been a discussion for several years[2] and I have started on
a RPM package based on the work of other.

Those of you who run Fedora can test these builds today by installing
from COPR[3].

Are there applications/workflows that you recommend that I run to verify
that the installation work? Are there anyone running Fedora that can
provide feedback before we publish RPM packages?

Currently we do not build with media or webkit support, will that cause
big problems?

Can you redirect me to details about the licenses? The LICENSE file
states GPL v2 with exceptions, but I have found other bundled libraries
with different license.

Sincerely Jonny Heggheim
