Is that -doc subpackage really arch-specific? It contains HTML documentation. "BuildArch: noarch" sounds plausible.

For reading the HTML documentation one does not need to install the base library package. Please don't add such a dependency to _independent_ -doc packages. If the documentation can only be displayed with a program in the base package, that would be an example of a case when to add such a dep.

In case you added the dep only for the license and directories included in the base package, consider duplicating the license file and dirs in the -doc package instead.

> %files
> %{_libdir}/*.so
> %dir %{_defaultdocdir}/es
> %doc %{_defaultdocdir}/es/COPYING

Uh, that's odd.

If the package is named "libes", it ought to store doc files in a directory named "libes" not "es".

Btw, in spec files you can use %_docdir just fine, and files below /usr/share/doc are marked as %doc implicitly (see "rpm -E %__docdir_path").

The tool has found an issue with your package. ;-)

  Summary:        Library for managing an entity system written in c++

C++ should be capitalized. I would expect Entity System to be capitalized too if it's a technical term

  If you do not know what an entity system is, you should read the following

This doesn't look like a very good description for the package! The link describes it as "Component/Entity System" which is a better (less generic) name.  Wikipedia uses Entity-component system: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entity_component_system
