Jam is a program construction tool, like make. Jam recursively builds target
files from source files, using dependency information and updating actions
expressed in the Jambase file, which is written in jam's own interpreted
language. The default Jambase is compiled into jam and provides a boilerplate
for common use, relying on a user-provide file "Jamfile" to enumerate actual
targets and sources.
Comment 1 José Matos 2005-09-09 09:00:36 EDT
+ mock builds cleanly 
+ rpmlint does not complain 
+ name is OK 
+ license is OK 
+ spec file readable 
+ source is the same as upstream 
Any reason to not compress the source file, other then to follow upstream? 
The source field could use %{name} and %{version}, no? All the versions in the 
ftp site follow the same pattern. 
Comment 2 José Matos 2005-09-09 09:26:36 EDT
Is there any reason not to use the smp_flag in make? 
This is really minor and it is a reminder, whatever you decide is OK with me. 
Usual discalaimer applies here...  
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-09-09 18:34:02 EDT
I didn't compress the source file because upstream didn't. Really only saves
400K, which doesn't matter much. Disk is cheap. :)
