Description: Utrac is a command line tool and a library that recognize the encoding
of an input file (ex: UTF-8, ISO-8859-1, CP437...) and its end-of-line
type (CR, LF, CRLF).
It has three main features:
- Automatic recognition (depending on the file and on the system's locale),
  reliable in most cases;
- Assistance for verification or manual recognition;
- Conversion to an other charset and/or end-of-line type.
Comment 1 Aurelien Bompard 2005-09-26 10:44:02 EDT
- change Source tag to to make it
  directly downloadable
- rename patch0 to ultrac-destdir.patch (to have the ultrac prefix)
- there are hardcoded paths in the patch. For example, you could replace
  "/usr" with "@PREFIX@" for example, and run a sed substitution to change
  it in %prep. Same idea for %_bindir, %_mandir, %_includedir, and %_datadir
- french description lacks the "-l fr" option
- dont do "rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_DIR/%{name}-%{version}" in %clean
- don't package the INSTALL file, it's useless
- don't own the /usr/share/man/man1 directory

It looks like utrac does not use Sourceforge's download facility (at least for
version 0.3.0). The proper URL is
Please change it and you're APPROVED.
