Description Nicolas Mailhot 2007-11-25 20:51:15 UTC
Spec URL: http://nim.fedorapeople.org/gfs-porson-fonts.spec SRPM URL: http://nim.fedorapeople.org/gfs-porson-fonts-20060908-1.fc9.src.rpm Description: In England, during the 1790’s, Cambridge University Press decided to procure a new set of Greek types. The university’s great scholar of Classics, Richard Porson was asked to produce a typeface based on his handsome handwriting and Richard Austin was commissioned to cut the types. The type was completed in 1808, after the untimely death of Porson the previous year. Its success was immediate and since then the classical editions in Great Britain and the U.S.A. use it, almost invariably. In 1913, Monotype released the typeface with some corrections, notably replacing the upright capitals suggested by Porson with inclined ones. In Greece the typeface was used under the name Pelasgika type. GFS Porson is based on the Monotype version, though using upright capitals, as in the original.

looks correct SRPM is http://nim.fedorapeople.org/gfs-porson-fonts-20060908-2.fc9.src.rpm rpmlint gave me gfs-porson-fonts.noarch: I: checking gfs-porson-fonts.noarch: E: description-line-too-long In England, during the 1790’s, Cambridge University Press decided to procure a Your description lines must not exceed 79 characters. If a line is exceeding this number, cut it to fit in two lines. gfs-porson-fonts.noarch: W: no-version-in-last-changelog The last changelog entry doesn't contain a version. Please insert the version that is coherent with the version of the package and rebuild it.

(In reply to comment #1) > looks correct SRPM is > http://nim.fedorapeople.org/gfs-porson-fonts-20060908-2.fc9.src.rpm Yes I fixed a small problem after filing the review request > rpmlint gave me > gfs-porson-fonts.noarch: I: checking > gfs-porson-fonts.noarch: E: description-line-too-long In England, during the > 1790’s, Cambridge University Press decided to procure a > Your description lines must not exceed 79 characters. If a line is exceeding > this number, cut it to fit in two lines. The lines have been resized using the standard "fold" tool. So they are all 80 column max. rpmlint targets a non-standard terminal width, 79 column and I don't believe this width is actually in use anywhere or that any terminal user will actually be inconvenienced if we use the full 80 column. If you really insist I may resize the text but that seems a waste of time to me. > gfs-porson-fonts.noarch: W: no-version-in-last-changelog > The last changelog entry doesn't contain a version. Please insert the > version that is coherent with the version of the package and rebuild it. rpmlint wants to force you to put the version at the end of the first changelog line, however the official approved Fedora changelog format list includes a style where the version is not on this line (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Changelogs, 3rd style) so rpmlint's warning is bogus
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-26 16:59:40 UTC
I prefer you to fix rpmlint error description-line-too-long. Reason, If this is bogus message then we should have already removed it from rpmlint tool itself but as rpmlint is made to report it as error, good to fix this.
Comment 4 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-11-26 18:47:14 UTC
Updated version posted at the usual place to cut lines at 79 columns. Note that rpmlint does not know how to count UTF-8 characters, so if it still complains do check in an UTF-8 aware editor he's actually right (he isn't)
Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-27 03:02:23 UTC
I agree it was big work for you to ask to fix small issue but still I prefer to follow what rpmlint says till rpmlint tool gives it as Error and not Warning.
Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-27 03:19:24 UTC
Dunno, But with updated version I still see gfs-porson-fonts.src: E: description-line-too-long In England, during the 1790’s, Cambridge University Press decided to procure a Otherwise Packaging looks ok. APPROVED.
Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-27 03:21:21 UTC
I don't want you to waste your time again now so if you want to fix it then fix at time of cvs import.
Comment 8 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-11-27 07:03:16 UTC
rpmlint is wrong and does no know how to count UTF-8 properly. I actually cheched the line it tags manually - it's less than 79 columns in UTF-8, which is our default encoding.
