The review will also concern gluegen and cpptasks
I was unable to package this one without Jimi which is nonfree and
needs to be riped out.
This one is really non-trivial if doable.

compiled without others nonfree dependencies.
The nonfree choice have to be completely ripped out along with the
included "tweaked/prebuilt" jar files, so even if that's not needed
for scilab properly, we may either have nonfree dependencies, or
packages that fails to build from sources.
If such problem appears we could miss the scilab java gui.
If someone want to help, there are probably specs around that need to
be raised to the fedora guidelines:
