Ical is an X Window System based calendar program. Ical will
create/edit/delete entries, create repeating entries, remind you about
upcoming appointments, print and list item occurrences, and allow
shared calendars between different users.

Well, for general packaging issues, please refer to

Some random comments for 2.3.3-2:

* Please write the full URL of Source1. Otherwise
  write as a comment where you found Source1.

* Please follow the buildroot tag required for Fedora.

* Please check the license. COPYING.GNU is GPL+.

* Use macros correctly. /usr/share must be %_datadir, for

* stripping binaries by yourself is forbidden because
  this makes debuginfo rpm useless.

* Please choose whether you choose macros or native commands
  For example, while you use %__install, you also use
  perk (can be %__perl), make (can be %__make) and so on.

* Please avoid %makeinstall if possible
  - For this package, adding 'INSTALL="install" -p' option
    to "make install" is preferable because this keeps timestamps
    on almost all instaled files.

* When you use "install" or "cp" command, use "-p" option to
  keep timestamps.

* Desktop files must be installed by "desktop-file-install"
  (BR: desktop-file-utils is needed)
  - Category "Application" is deprecated and should be removed.

If someone wants to import this package into Fedora, please file
a new review request and mark this bug as a duplicate of the new one.

Thank you!
