I'm a new Fedora packager and I love PlantUML. There was no maintainer for the Fedora package, so I have volunteered to be the point of contact. I have a fork of the packaging repo, where I hope to update the dependencies and docs to the latest goodness:
https://src.fedoraproject.org/fork/blaise/rpms/plantuml
Currently there seem to be two items which are breaking the build:

Welcome!

You'll see that people are not very talkative :-)

I'm not familiar with Fedora, but if I understand correctly https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1909865 it means that PlantUML does need a complete JVM to run (and not a "java-headless" one, which seems to be a Fedora notion).

So probably you have to change some dependency list somewhere (but I have to idea where :-) ).

About OpenJDK, PlantUML should run on any JDK. So you might pickup another one. Once again, this is not on raw PlantUML side, but probably on the Fedora package itself.

Hope this helps! Tell us about your progress!
