Description Florian Müllner 2013-10-30 23:13:22 EDT
Spec URL: http://fmuellner.fedorapeople.org/polari.spec
SRPM URL: http://fmuellner.fedorapeople.org/polari-3.11.1-1.fc20.src.rpm
Description: Polari is an Internet Relay Chat client for the GNOME desktop

Builds on F20, a scratch build is available[0].

rpmlint *.rpm *.spec:
  polari.armv7hl: W: no-manual-page-for-binary polari
  polari.i686: W: no-manual-page-for-binary polari
  polari.x86_64: W: no-manual-page-for-binary polari
 7 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 3 warnings.

While I already maintain some packages in Fedora (mostly mutter/gnome-shell), this is my first package submission, so I will need a sponsor :-)
I'm an upstream maintainer of the aforementioned components as well as polari.

Looks like I was wrong and co-maintaining existing packages already qualifies, sorry for the noise.
Comment 2 Christopher Meng 2013-10-30 23:46:08 EDT
Just wanted to package it~
Comment 3 Andrea Veri 2013-10-31 10:19:19 EDT
I'll review this.
Comment 4 Christopher Meng 2013-11-08 08:23:13 EST
ping andrea after a week.
Comment 5 Andrea Veri 2013-11-08 11:12:37 EST
I'll make sure this is done within the upcoming weekend.
Comment 6 Yanko Kaneti 2013-11-08 13:26:45 EST
Some basic observations while trying to try this on rawhide.

- You are patching *am, the tarball is disted with automake 1.13, rawhide has automake 1.14 -> you need to autoreconf -fi and BR: automake autoconf libtool

- It wouldnt't work with the gjs in rawhide, so had to upgrade to a snapshot
(polari:14085): Gjs-WARNING **: JS ERROR: [boxed instance proxy GIName:GLib.Error jsobj@0x7f0562c91df0 native@0x156f720]

- It fails hard without telepathy-mission-control, perhaps it should Require: it
(polari:27156): Gjs-WARNING **: JS ERROR: GLib.Error dbus-glib-error-quark: The name org.freedesktop.Telepathy.AccountManager was not provided by any .service files
Comment 7 Florian Müllner 2013-11-13 17:46:06 EST
Upstream is now at 3.11.2, I updated SPEC, SRPM[0] and corresponding scratch build[1] accordingly.

Patch is included in the new upstream release, so no longer part of the spec.

Ugh, this is https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=708749; the error is basically about not being able to properly print an error message, so this should not really affect normal use.
Still, if desired, I can patch it out for F20/rawhide.

Done, and I added telepathy-idle as well while at it.

Thanks, appreciated. I don't think it will be necessary a lot (my workflow for upstream releases includes updating the Fedora packages by now), but a 2nd pair of eyes certainly can't hurt :-)
