Building OpenJFX for Fedora w/ OpenJDK

Just a quick note to link to the newly created Fedora COPR repository I created to publish a pre-built RPM of OpenJFX available to Fedora users. I’ve only tested it on Fedora 21 & 22 x86_64 for now.

Installing the package and getting updates when they are published is as simple as:

dnf copr enable gferon/openjfx
dnf install java-1.8.0-openjfx

This is my first time packaging something that big for Fedora, and I’ll definitely improve the way I generate the RPMs one I learn more.
