I made a mistake in the srpm url, it is
Comment 2 John Mahowald 2006-01-29 14:59:32 EST
To clarify, the use of the Debian archive because it has the latest 1.2?


- rpmlint checks clean
- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines
- license (GPL) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream
- package compiles on FC4 i386
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories that it creates
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for .desktop file

Hi Patrice, I think this is a candidate for the simplest and smallest 
package submitted to Fedora Extras.  And it looks like you've done it 

 + source matches upstream
 + very simple (almost trivial) package
 + spec looks clean & good -- no obvious errors
 + builds on FC4
 + rpmlint reports no errors or warnings
 + license is correct and correctly included

so its APPROVED.

Hi John, you beat me to it by a few minutes so you clearly get credit for 
the review here.  And I apologize for hitting the "submit anyway" button 
without paying closer attention to what was going on.  I've re-assigned 
the bug back to you so it should be un-done.

And, anyway, its nice to see that we agree...  :-)
Comment 5 Patrice Dumas 2006-01-29 16:31:58 EST
I used the 1.2 from debian as I couldn't find it anywhere else and it has some
fixes with regard with 1.1, especially in the Makefile.

This is my first doubly approved package. Maybe because it is such a complex
package? ;-)
