You'll find some i386 packages in
as well.

* Upstream source tarball verified
* Package name conforms to the Fedora Naming Guidelines
* Group Tag is from the official list
* All paths begin with macros
* All directories are owned by this or other packages
* No deprecated fields used
* All desired features are enabled

* Specified Source URL is not canonical.
* Missing Documentation: Add COPYING file.
* Requires for evolution, evolution-data-server, and libsoup can be dropped
since the BR should pull these in.
* Rpmlint errors (ran against binary provided by you): 
  E: evolution-caldav devel-dependency evolution-data-server-devel
  W: evolution-caldav no-documentation

* Buildroot lacks certain elements
  %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n) is the
preferred value.  Refer to

* Is "[ -n "$RPM_BUILD_ROOT" -a "$RPM_BUILD_ROOT" != / ]" really necessary in
the %install & %clean sections?

* I'm unable to build this currently in Mock, due to mesa-libGL being broken in
Rawhide.  Once this has been fixed, I'll try to build this package again.  Also,
since I'm not on Rawhide yet, someone else will need to verify that this package
runs as expected.  At a minimum, at least some of the reviewing needed for this
package is done.

Above mentioned errors have not been addressed yet, plus building on
fedora-core-devel-i386 (evolution 2.5.4-6) fails on ./configure:
checking Evolution version... configure: error: Evolution development libraries
not installed
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.85097 (%build)

If its a dead bug could you close it, otherwise try to address the mentioned
issues? :-)
Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2006-04-22 04:27:16 EDT

Are you still interested in packaging this and becoming an FE contributer? I see
you need a sponsor, I can sponsor you if you want.
Comment 5 Dave Malcolm 2006-04-24 11:13:05 EDT
By the time FC5 landed, evolution-data-server-1.6 gained a caldav backend, and
evolution-2.6 gained the necessary UI hooks to work with it, so this package is
only really of interest for evolution 2.4.  

IIRC this version was only in Fedora during the first part of the FC5
development cycle (FC4 had 2.2), so I think this separate package is not
particularly useful anymore, unless someone wants to run 2.4, and run it with
caldav support.

If anyone wants to own it, please step forward, but for now I'm going to close
this as WONTFIX (feel free to reopen if you think my analysis is wrong).  Thanks
to everyone for your help in packaging review, I'm sorry that it now appears
