Comment 1 Matthew Robinson 2014-01-13 10:07:10 EST
What's the typical process for packages like these that have already been built, but not updated for new versions? I didn't see anything about this on the wiki page for becoming a package maintainer. Specifically here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers#Ensure_the_software_you_wish_to_package_is_suitable
Comment 2 Matthew Robinson 2014-01-13 10:58:37 EST
Looks like it was orphaned previously:

I am posting here as I am willing to package this (rather then opening a new review request)

The process for claiming ownership of retired packages is explained here:

  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life#Unretire_a_Package

  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Orphaned_package_that_need_new_maintainers

[...]

The review process is explained here:

  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Package_Review_Process

Basically, anyone can contribute a review based on the Review Guidelines, but only members of the packager group may approve packages finally. And in case of the package submitter not being a packager yet, here's the process:

What's up with bug 999732 with regard to the snapshot in this package?

[...]

A few relevant links:

 * https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Package_Versioning
 * https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:SourceURL
 * https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:LicensingGuidelines#License_Text
 * https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Desktop_files

[...]

Consider pointing the fedora-review tool at this ticket:

  fedora-review -b 1051688

It downloads the latest spec file and src.rpm from the "Spec URL:" and "SRPM URL:" lines it can find and performs many helpful checks on them, involving a local test-build, too.

[...]

How does 

 -DCOMPTON_VERSION="\"git--\""

related to

  Version:        0.1_beta2.%{git_hash}

in the package?


Also, latest package published at Fedora is:

  compton-0-0.3.20121218g75aec17.fc19
  http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=14237

Why does this new package set "Epoch"?

[...]

Has there been no new release since 2014-01-10?

[...]

Some minimum interest in "compton" provided, it should be easier for multiple people to perform self-reviews and offer maintained packages for potential sponsors.
