Description Quentin Spencer 2005-09-20 13:22:19 EDT
Spec Name or Url: http://webpages.charter.net/qspencer/rpm/fig2ps.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://webpages.charter.net/qspencer/rpm/fig2ps-1.3.3-1.src.rpm
fig2ps is a perl script which converts xfig files to postscript or
PDF, using LaTeX for processing text (a capability not included in
transfig). This provides the benefit of seamless integration of
figures into documents (the font in the figures is the same as in the
text), and allows for special typesetting commands (such as
mathematical equations) to be included in figures.
Comment 1 Ed Hill 2005-09-20 13:43:15 EDT
Hi Quentin, since fig2ps is a perl script I think it should list perl within 
its "Requires:..." section.  I'll do a more thorough review tonight.
Comment 2 Ed Hill 2005-09-20 13:45:52 EDT
Ah, nevermind the above comment!  RPM does indeed find it.  Sorry!
Comment 3 Ed Hill 2005-09-20 19:26:59 EDT
 + source matches upstream
 + license is not included but the included README does clearly 
     state GPL so I think thats *fine*
 + code not content
 + very simple package

one nit:
 - please use the standard BuildRoot (after CVS import is OK)

Comment 4 Quentin Spencer 2005-09-21 14:33:37 EDT
I fixed the buildroot, as well as one other problem, and a release has been
built in devel, with FC-3 and FC-4 branches requested.
