Created attachment 1475220 [details]
SPEC file for 0.5.1

Description of problem:
Fedora comes with outdated version of grive2, in some cases incompatible with Google Drive. Grive2-0.5.1-dev is available, compiles and works well in Fedora 28. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Attached there is a SPEC file I use to create my own RPM.

Comment 1 Zamir SUN 2018-08-13 02:51:02 UTC
Can you specify where you see 0.5.1 release? I did not see it anywhere.

Currently, we are running on git commit 

which was released on 20171122.

And the commit you uploaded in the spec file
was released on 20160115, which is a year older than the current one in Fedora.

Comment 2 Tibbs Brookside 2018-08-30 11:17:09 UTC
I do not believe that 0.5.1 has been released yet. I'm not sure if the developer is going to be producing "releases" any more as the wiki just says to pull from the master.

The latest release on github is 0.5.0 (ae06ecc) from 14 Jan 2016.

As far as I can see, although the spec file provided sets some variables, the source file specified doesn't appear to exist so it just uses the latest master as the source. Currently this is:

cf51167 from Aug 19, 2018.

I am also keen to see an update to the package based on a newer commit, specifically 93cae25 from Jul 28, 2018 as this will hopefully fix an issue with 403 "Rate Limit Exceeded" errors.

Comment 3 Cezary Zemis 2018-08-30 11:28:14 UTC
Guys, you're right. 0.5.1 is still being developed, and current code used in Fedora 28's package is newer then I had. I also tested that current package (usually) works with Google Drive.

This makes sense. I can look into the newer commits and possible build a bugfix version. But a long time before this happen could be expected, as I am really busy recently.

Also fixing the title to reflect what I will do.
