Description Till Hofmann 2014-03-14 13:32:55 UTC
Spec URL: http://thofmann.fedorapeople.org/orocos-kdl.spec
SRPM URL: http://thofmann.fedorapeople.org/orocos-kdl-1.1.102-2.fc20.src.rpm
libsuffix patch: http://thofmann.fedorapeople.org/orocos-kdl.libsuffix.patch
The Kinematics and Dynamics Library (KDL) develops an application independent
framework for modeling and computation of kinematic chains, such as robots,
bio-mechanical human models, computer-animated figures, machine tools, etc.
It provides class libraries for geometrical objects (point, frame, line,... ),
kinematic chains of various families (serial, humanoid, parallel, mobile,... ),
and their motion specification and interpolation.

I've submitted a bug report at http://bugs.orocos.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1056 to include the lib-suffix patch.

Comment 1 Volker Fröhlich 2014-04-27 15:12:57 UTC
Don't add version constraints to cmake and sip. Every version of Fedora and at least EPEL6 provides the necessary versions.

The license should be LGPLv2+.

Comment 2 Till Hofmann 2014-06-05 15:34:36 UTC
There is a new version available on github [1], I've updated the SPEC file in place. The new SRPM can be found at [2]. There is a new patch which updates the version [3].

I've tried to include the python package as well, but in order to build the python package, I need orocos-kdl already installed. I could adapt the build process to use the headers in the src dir and the newly built library files, but I'm not sure if this is the right way to do this. I figured it would be easier to put the python package in a seperate SPEC file instead. Any suggestions on that?

In order to allow the use of the python bindings, I've added sip-devel as build requirement and enabled the build flag.

I've removed the version constraints and changed the license as suggested.

I've added documentation to the devel package.

Comment 3 Till Hofmann 2015-05-21 09:25:38 UTC
Spec URL: https://thofmann.fedorapeople.org/orocos-kdl.spec
SRPM URL: https://thofmann.fedorapeople.org/orocos-kdl-1.3.0-3.fc20.src.rpm

I've updated the package to the new upstream version 1.3.0, which also includes the libsuffix patch.
I've split the python bindings into a separate spec file, which I will submit for review separately.

There is a unit test which fails on ix86, therefore I currently exclude ix86. The issue is reported upstream [1]. Once the issue is resolved, I will re-add ix86. Following the guidelines [2], I've added a comment to the spec file explaining the issue, and I will file a bug once the package has been approved.

The package builds successfully for x86_64 and arm [3].

A review would be highly appreciated!
