Hi Colin!

The %changelog is missing in the .spec.


Comment 2 Colin Walters 2015-07-26 16:26:47 UTC
Hi Florian,

I usually add the %changelog after it's added to Fedora.  It's a source of merge conflicts, so I delay as long as possible.

Comment 3 Florian "der-flo" Lehner 2015-07-26 18:13:27 UTC
Hi Colin,

providing something general like "initial packaging" should be fine for %changelog and doesn't produce that much merge conflicts.

The versioning is confusing. In the spec-file it is 2015.1 and in the github repository v2015.2.

I see and can reproduce how to get Source0.  But if would be great, if you could reference the source to a unique commit - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:SourceURL?rd=Packaging/SourceURL#Git_Hosting_Services

Spec URL; https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cgwalters/rpmdistro-gitoverlay/master/rpmdistro-gitoverlay.spec

Where is SRPM Url? it's required for review.

Any way some notes.

-> BuildRequires: git
   git-core please

-> Requires: yum-plugin-priorities
   why yum? is it really required?

-> Source0: %{name}-%{version}.tar.xz
   why not %{url}/archive/%{shortcommit}.tar.gz#/%{name}-%{shortcommit}.tar.gz?

OK, I'll update soon to the new git guidelines.

(Ironically rpmdistro-gitoverlay is intended to fix all that...)
