Are you still interested in getting this package to Fedora? I'd like to see Flacon in the official repositories, so I can do a review for you.
Comment 2 Ilya Gradina 2016-04-27 05:34:10 EDT
Hi Jiri,

new Spec URL: https://github.com/ilgrad/fedora-packages/raw/master/flacon/flacon.spec
new SRPM URL: https://github.com/ilgrad/fedora-packages/raw/master/flacon/flacon-2.0.1-1.fc24.src.rpm

but the tests do not pass:
If I am building the package manually, and run tests/flacon_test the output:
Comment 3 Jiri Eischmann 2016-04-27 11:17:27 EDT
Unfortunately, I have not been able to run fedora-review on it in F24 for some reason. So for the start:

current: BuildRequires: %{_bindir}/desktop-file-validate
correct: BuildRequires: desktop-file-utils

current: BuildRequires: gcc-c++ cmake
correct: BuildRequires: cmake
gcc-c++ doesn't have to be specifically required

mkdir build should go to the %build section

I consulted the %build and %install sections with Jan Grulich who maintains quite a few Qt apps in Fedora, it should be like this according to him:

mkdir -p %{_target_platform}
pushd %{_target_platform}
%{cmake} \
    -DUSE_QT5=Yes \
make %{?_smp_mflags} -C %{_target_platform}
make install DESTDIR=%{buildroot} -C %{_target_platform}
%find_lang %{name} --with-qt

There is no need to specify a full path, so it should rather be:

update-desktop-database &> /dev/null ||
touch --no-create %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null || :
update-desktop-database &> /dev/null ||
if [ $1 -eq 0 ] ; then
    touch --no-create %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null
    gtk-update-icon-cache -f %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null || :
gtk-update-icon-cache -f %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor &>/dev/null || :

Desktop file validation should be in the %check section

It's a desktop app, so it needs to have an AppData metadata file to appear in the app catalog. There also needs to be a validation check: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:AppData
I can help you create the metadata file.

Commands don't have to be indented, it's rather rare to see in spec files, but it's just formality.

It fails the upstream tests because the test is specifically looking for ffmpeg which is not available in Fedora for legal reasons. But I tried and Falcon doesn't depend on it, it's still useful and can do the job with free music formats, so I would just ignore the tests.

Comment 6 Jiri Eischmann 2016-05-04 08:44:03 EDT
I think you don't need to own the directories reported by fedora-review. So only unsolved problems is the reported missing dependency (libfishsound) and missing appdata file. I've created one for you (see the attachment). Since it's not shipped by upstream (you should definitely propose it there) the best way is to include in the spec file. See e.g. the spec file of Inkscape package how to do it. See the linked guidelines above to learn how to install and verify an appdata file.
Also the license should probably be LGPL-2.1. That's also what the upstream RPM spec file says.

Hi Jiri,
thx for xml file.
What about license, I think should be LGPLv2+ based in this:

Comment 9 Jiri Eischmann 2016-05-09 18:29:44 EDT
I think the license is fine. I still get an error with missing dependency (libfishsound), I suppose it needs to be a build-time dependency. I also get an error with the validation of the appdata.xml file. The ratio of screenshots should be 16x9. But it seems to pass the validation test in %check, so it's probably just a detail. Just try putting libfishsound to BuildRequires and if fedora-review doesn't complain I'll sign off the package.
Comment 10 Jiri Eischmann 2016-05-10 10:26:44 EDT
So I tried to add libfishsoup to BuildRequires and RMPlint stopped complaining, looks like optional build-time dependency. If it gets pulled in (I couldn't find any clue in cmake scripts) it's statically linked. That should be properly marked: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Packaging_Static_Libraries
I don't know what functionality libfishsoup gives to Flacon, best to ask the upstream devels. But Russian Fedora is building Flacon without it, so I think the best approach for now is to leave it out.
Comment 11 Ilya Gradina 2016-05-10 15:52:42 EDT
Hi Jiri, thx!

libfishsound for opusenc. (https://www.xiph.org/fishsound/ ). 
I removed libfishsound from requires, and had changed appdata xml file.

Comment 12 Jiri Eischmann 2016-05-11 03:40:26 EDT
I'm OK with the package now.

I can now add request new package on "https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/" ?
Comment 14 Jiri Eischmann 2016-05-11 07:37:55 EDT
I marked the fedora review as done, you should be in the group of packagers AFAIK, so I think you can go ahead and request a new package.

ok, thx! I made request a new package.

Package request has been approved: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/package/rpms/flacon
