RPMs for the native libs

Issue #31 new
Former user created an issue

Originally reported on Google Code with ID 31 ``` I buildt RPMs of the native Linux libs for x86_64 and i386. They don't compile the source (because I couldn't find it), so they won't show up in the official Fedora repos. However, maybe a third-party repo will adopt them or other packagers will refer to them. It's at least a first step to spare the distribution of them with every single application using sqlite4java.

Since I'm not an official maintainer, careful people probably want to import my pubkey from sutor-it.com/0xA94EE37B.asc

    ``` Thanks Tobias! Is there anything we can do to help other guys who'd like to have this rpm or have distro maintainers adopt it? ```

    ``` Well, that's kind of complex situation.

    First, the RPM is supposed to compile the source, which usually comes as a GNU make tarball. I've already converted a C project to a make project, but I'm not familiar with your source and I'm not sure if you'd like such a big change. So, beside the fact that you'd need a Fedora-Maintainer (which I'd like to become, but I'm to occupied atm.), you must also comply with their quality-standards (which are very high and as I've stated above, I don't think that you wanna put that kind of effort in this idea).

    My assumption is, that focusing on a third-party repo would be the appropriate way. Although I'm not related to any repo yet, I'll release RPMs for my other project (which is using sqlite4java and therefore is the reason why I built the RPMs: https://sourceforge.net/projects/roboquiz/) and a third project (https://sourceforge.net/projects/weblooker/) too. So, eventually I'll get in touch with one of the common repos and try to become a maintainer.

    Until then you're free to simply offer the rpm's as downloads and I'll try to update them whenever possible. If the feedback is positive I can also build packages for the jar and Debian packages.

    regards. ```
