I'll review it.

Comment 3 Peter Lemenkov 2008-05-19 12:54:37 UTC
Initial remarks:

* Requires tktray. Do you plan to submit it for review?
* desktop-file-install - wrong vendor
* Wrong versioning scheme - should be

Version: 0.10.1
Release: 0.1.beta2%{?dist}

where Release consists of 0 (which means prerelease) ++ buildnum ++ beta2
(prerelease version) ++ %{dist}

Using this naming scheme we may ensure that application will be updated then it
will be released ( 0.10.1-[1-9] > 0.10.1-0.anything, but 0.10.1.beta2 >

Consider to change your spec-file according to these suggestions.

BTW This wonderful app was in my TODO-list for a long time and I'm glad to see
that now it's on the way to Fedora, finally :)

>* Requires tktray. Do you plan to submit it for review?

yes. already submitted.


* desktop-file-install - wrong vendor

Maybe. But I don't know right value of this parameter. 

Any tips or suggest for this bug?

At this time, I simple removed --vendor from desktop-file-install.

* Wrong versioning scheme - should be

Putting this review on hold until tktray will be reviewed. 

As for vendor field in desktop-file-install, you should use vendor fedora, if
upstream doesn't provide its own. See details here:

Removing NEEDSPONSOR. I am sponsoring Alexey.

Comment 9 Mamoru TASAKA 2009-01-15 17:39:54 UTC
What is the status of this bug?

Comment 10 Peter Lemenkov 2009-01-21 11:11:02 UTC
Alexey Lubimov promised me in private email, that he will renew tkabber package soon. So, I think we should wait for a while.

Comment 11 Peter Lemenkov 2009-03-15 07:06:29 UTC
Unfortunately, initial reporter has some issues with logging in to Bugzilla and has no interest in solving them.
