Default bootstrapping for scala

I am working on a package (BZ#426867) for scala
(http://www.scala-lang.org) that requires bootstrapping with a
previously compiled toolchain. According to the Packaging Guidelines
this package requires approval from the Packaging Committee for
inclusion in fedora since pre-built components are require to build the
package from source. The Packaging/Committee page on the wiki leads me
to believe this is the appropriate forum to do so. What steps need to
happen to get this approval?

Does the scala package cleanly rebuild from source after it is
bootstrapped?

It would be nice to see the SRPM before we signed off on this.

Yes. The build procedure for scala uses multiple phases to ensure that
the code cleanly bootstraps. The sequence is like this:

bootstrap (starr) -> locker -> quick -> strap

The results of the quick phase are packaged. The results of the strap
phase are compared byte-for-byte with the resuts of the quick phase to
ensure that the compiler is stable.

For more details, see http://tinyurl.com/3e3l55 which is the README of
the source distribution. It describes in detail the process used to
build scala. I use this process unaltered when building the RPM.

Sure, you can check out the review request in progress at
