Note: Even though I'm a Red Hatter, this is an personal project.

A strange one so far. :-/

> %files
> %doc /usr/share/doc/libonix/README.md
> %{_libdir}/libonix.so

There is just the lib, no API yet!

> rpm-fedora.spec


Even if it only says "should" there, be nice and adhere to such guidelines.

> Source0:	libOnix-%{version}-src.zip


> License:	GPLv2

Nothing at all in the source tarballs refers to the licensing.

> %build
> cmake .


> $ rpm -qp --provides libOnix-1.0.0-1.fc21.x86_64.rpm|grep ^lib
> libOnix = 1.0.0-1.fc21
> libOnix(x86-64) = 1.0.0-1.fc21
> libonix.so()(64bit)

An unversioned SONAME. If anything used this lib already, the automatic dependency would be very weak.

Oh, and you're not in the packager group.

Please spend a few minutes on the documentation at the bottom of


especially the various HOWTOs that should be most interesting to you.

Given all the reoccurring fuss on devel@ list about the FE-NEEDSPONSOR queue, I consider it an insult that there hasn't been any response to my comments since 2015-03-11.

Closing and removing from the queue.
