Description Jeff Carlson 2005-08-18 08:31:25 EDT
Spec Name or Url: http://www.ultimateevil.org/~jeff/Fedora/zile.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://www.ultimateevil.org/~jeff/Fedora/zile-2.2.1-3.src.rpm
Zile is a small Emacs clone. Zile is a customizable, self-documenting
real-time open-source display editor. Zile was written to be as
similar as possible to Emacs; every Emacs user should feel at home.
* This is my first contribution.

- rpmlint checks clean
- meets naming, packaging guidelines
- license ok (GPL), COPYING in %doc, matches source
- spec file in am. engl, legible
- sources match upstream
- no locales
- no libraries
- not relocatable
- owns all dirs it creates
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- clean section OK
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- builds and runs fine on fc4 (x86)
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for -devel
- no .la, no .pc

- Missing BuildRequires: libtermcap-devel

This is a very minor needswork. Post the fixed spec and I'll approve it. (Also,
resubmit your request for cvsextras access and I'll sponsor).
Comment 2 Jeff Carlson 2005-08-18 11:07:02 EDT
New spec and http://www.ultimateevil.org/~jeff/Fedora/zile-2.2.1-4.src.rpm
posted.  I'll also add it builds and runs fine on my ppc32 system.
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-08-18 11:17:21 EDT
Approved. Good job. :)
Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2005-08-18 11:19:53 EDT
Missing "Buildrequires: texinfo":

Comment 5 Jeff Carlson 2005-08-18 11:34:44 EDT
Thanks for catching that.  New spec and src.rpm. 
Comment 6 Michael Fleming 2005-08-18 21:44:40 EDT
FWIW you might want to update this to the current version (2.2.4). 2.2.1 crashed
on startup on 64bit systems which will likely make the x86_64 build a bit unhappy.

(It's fixed in 2.2.2, which is what I ship in my own repository at the moment.)
Comment 7 Jeff Carlson 2005-08-18 23:44:24 EDT
Thanks, I hadn't checked the latest release in a while.  Ok, I've bumped up the
source to the latest.  Spec file is still in the same place.  Here's the latest
