Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-10-09 10:36:17 EDT
Spec Name or Url: http://fedora.ivazquez.net/files/extras/mimetex.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://fedora.ivazquez.net/files/extras/mimetex-1.60-1.src.rpm
Description: MimeTeX lets you easily embed LaTeX math in your html pages. It parses a LaTeX math expression and immediately emits the corresponding gif image, rather than the usual TeX dvi. And mimeTeX is an entirely separate little program that doesn't use TeX or its fonts in any way.
Comment 1 Michael A. Peters 2005-10-09 11:30:05 EDT
* Builds cleanly in mock (x86 FC-4)
* rpmlint likes the results (no errors on src or binary rpm)
* Proper name for package and specfile
* License in spec matches license in package, package with %doc
* Spec file properly written in American English, legible
* md5sum matches upstream
* No redundant or missing BuildRequires
* No locales or shared libraries
* Package installs/uninstalls cleanly provided /var/www/{cgi-bin,html} owned by
another package
* No duplicate files
* Permissions fine
* Correct use of Macros
* No devel package needed, no .la files
* Works fine for me in FC-4 Apache


It should require a webserver that owns /var/www/{html,cgi-bin}

The zip file in Source0 is unversioned. I'm not sure that is explicitly against
the rules, but it makes it easier to know which version a source in a
rpm/SOURCES directory is associated with.

Should it be built with optflags?
Comment 2 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-10-09 13:02:16 EDT
Good catches. I'm unwilling to futz with the whole unversioned source at this
time, but the rest should be fine now.
