FIX - MUST: $ rpmlint /var/lib/mock/fedora-rawhide-x86_64/result/yad-*
yad.src: W: spelling-error Summary(en_US) dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
yad.src: W: spelling-error %description -l en_US dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
yad.src:12: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 1, tab: line 12)
yad.src: W: invalid-url Source0: http://yad.googlecode.com/files/yad-0.2.0.tar.bz2 HTTP Error 404: Not Found
yad.x86_64: W: spelling-error Summary(en_US) dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
yad.x86_64: W: spelling-error %description -l en_US dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 6 warnings.

The spelling errors can be ignored, "dialogs" is the correct pluram form in American English.
The source URL is valid, tested with spectool
This leaves the mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs warning, which is trivial but should IMO be fixed.

N/A - MUST: If the package does not successfully compile, build or work on an architecture, then those architectures should be listed in the spec in ExcludeArch.
OK - MUST: all build dependencies are listed in BuildRequires.
OK - MUST: handles locales properly with %find_lang
N/A - MUST: Every binary RPM package (or subpackage) which stores shared library files (not just symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's default paths, must call ldconfig in %post and %postun.

N/A - MUST: Header files must be in a -devel package
N/A - MUST: Static libraries must be in a -static package
N/A - MUST: Packages containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires: pkgconfig'.
N/A - MUST: If a package contains library files with a suffix, then library files that end in .so must go in a -devel package.
N/A - MUST: devel packages must require the base package using a fully versioned dependency
OK - MUST: The package does not contain any .la libtool archives.
OK - MUST: The package contains a GUI application but it is not supposed to be calles from the menu, so no %{name}.desktop file is required.

N/A - SHOULD: pkgconfig(.pc) files should be placed in a -devel pkg
N/A - SHOULD: no file dependencies outside of /etc, /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin

Other items:
OK - latest stable version
OK - SourceURL valid
OK - Compiler flags ok
OK - Debuginfo complete

- What license is this? COPYING is GPLv3, but about.c says it's GPLv2+
- The manpage should not have .gz as extension because we might switch to bz2 or lzma compressed manpages some day
- Please fix the mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs warning.

The only blocker is the license. If you clarify this with upstream, I will approve the package.
Comment 2 Christoph Wickert 2010-05-09 10:35:14 EDT
Any news on this?
Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2010-05-11 18:52:26 EDT
BTW: 0.2.1 is out.
Comment 4 Christoph Wickert 2010-07-11 05:17:19 EDT
Meanwhile 0.3.0 is out and the license question is answered, all files are GPLv3+ now. Please update your package so I can have a look over it.

If I don't hear back within two weeks, I will close this review.
Comment 5 Christoph Wickert 2010-07-16 10:43:43 EDT
