FAQ: Getting Google Calendar Dependencies

In order to successfully build dz3-scheduler-gcal, you need some extra dependencies, and in order to run it, you need some more (both come from gdata-java-client library). Following are the steps to make them available (implies wget(1) installed on your system):

cd /tmp && \
wget && \
cd /usr/local/src && \
unzip /tmp/
The /usr/local/src location is hardcoded into dz3-scheduler-gcal/pom.xml, change it if it doesn't work for you.

1.40.2 was the latest version available at the time the development of dz3-schedule-gcal was finalized, feel free to replace it with the latest available - but make sure individual dependency version numbers match.

Why So Ugly?

Because gdata-java-client hasn't been made available to the Maven Central Repository yet.

If you want to make it happen and know how to do it, please do so. If you find out that dependencies in question are already in the central repository by the time you read this, please let me know.
