Hi, thanks for the ebuild.

The pom for pcfi says "Multiple licenses, see META-INF/LICENSE.txt", also is this jar only used at build time? Btw, you can get it at as maven central tends to disable wget from time to time.

Also disable the minimum of tests so it passes for you, this way at least regressions can be detected.

Thanks for your comments. I've managed the test issue, but how to handle pcfi? Should it be formed-in as separate ebuild, as provides sources and not the jar file? The font's license leads to, which isn't very clean to me. The pdfbox actually embeds the adobe's fonts into the final jar-file...

What's the status on the font licensing issue? Any resolution so we can move this issue forward?
Comment 15 Manuel Rüger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-11-13 14:53:06 UTC

any update here? would be greate to remove the old EAPI=1 ebuild in the tree.

+  21 Feb 2015; Patrice Clement <>
+  +files/pdfbox-1.8.8-build.xml.patch, +pdfbox-1.8.8.ebuild:
+  Version bump. Fix bug #430054.

This package was a bit of a nightmare to version bump. Note: upstream messed up the package version in build.xml. I've put together a patch to correct it. Anyway, give it a try and let me know.
