Koji Build: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=43518807

Write LaTeX documents with an easy to use yet full-featured editor.

- Buttons and shortcuts for many LaTeX elements and special characters.
- Document creation wizard.
- Dark mode.
- Helpful error messages in the build log.
- Looks great on the Gnome desktop.
- Good screen to content ratio.
- Arguably the best .pdf viewer of any LaTeX editor.

Comment 2 Fabian Affolter 2020-05-19 09:17:46 UTC
The upstream source contains unit tests and seems to support L10n (at least for 0.2.6). IF possible run the tests and add the localization please.

Comment 3 Lyes Saadi 2020-05-20 00:51:45 UTC

I can confirm that L10n support was added for 0.2.6! I unfortunately missed the update. Upstream uses tags and not GitHub releases, so I wasn't aware of a new version...

Also, I cannot find any unit test in the project? Are you referring to the "tests" directory? It only contains a meson file that validate the metainfo, but since it is already done in the check section, I think it is better to leave it as is for clarity. If you don't agree, don't hesitate to tell me why, I'll gladly change it!

It also has a new manual entry :D!

Updated version to 0.2.6:

- License is GPLv3+, see "either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later"

Please fix this before importing.

Comment 6 Lyes Saadi 2020-06-24 11:42:29 UTC
Thank you for this review :D !

I just have one question. So, I don't understand a lot licensing, so I might be wrong, but looking at the license (https://github.com/cvfosammmm/Setzer/blob/master/COPYING), I can't find the "or later" clause. Is this a false positive from license-check or me just not understanding licensing?

No, it's not a false-positive, see https://github.com/cvfosammmm/Setzer/blob/master/COPYING#L1-L4. This make it GPLv3+. Often upstream make it clear if it's GPLvX-only.

Ah, yes! Thank you! It's indeed me being bad at licensing :<...
