I came across this issue while attempting to compile gnu-crypto. I started getting errors saying that there was an undefined symbol in javax.security.Sasl but when checking the source the symbol was there. Then I decided to search for a duplicate class in my classpath and indeed I found it. The duplicate class was in the jldap code.
What's more, while examining the source for both classes it was self-evident that one class had been derived from the other.
This isn't the way things are supposed to be done. Either software is developed from scratch (not the case here) or software should credit the original source (also not the case here).
I have a questions and requests.
1.) Who is the author of this code? Who is the maintainer? Who is responsible for updates? I need these questions answered so that I can point to an authoritative source and so that the code has accountability.
2.) Whoever is not the author or the maintainer needs to drop or merge their copy and the reference the other copy. Or they need to fork the source and move it to a different package base. It's pretty frigging hard to use two packages, both of which I need, when there isn't collaborative development.
