OK - Spec legible
OK - Md5sum of source from upstream
OK - Compiles and builds on one arch at least.
See below - All required buildrequires included?
OK - Locale handling/find_lang.
OK - Owns all directories it creates.
OK - No duplicate files in %files listing.
OK - Permissions on files correct.
OK - Clean section correct.
OK - Macros consistant.
OK - Code not content.

See Below - Doesn't own any files/dirs that are already owned by others.
Items needing attention:
1. The summary has "Summary: Quicklauncher plugin for the Xfce panel"
Shouldn't that be "Mail Watcher plugin for the Xfce panel"?
2. Some of the dirs that this package owns are owned by lots of
other packages. In particular:
This package shouldn't also need to own those I wouldn't think.
Perhaps require hicolor-icon-theme and xfce4-panel to make sure those
dir dependencies are met.
3. Doesn't build in mock. Looks like it might be missing:
BuildRequires: imake libXt-devel
Hi Kevin, thanks for your review.

Oh my god - I just realized that _all_ my panel plugins lack an explicit
requirement on xfce4-panel! Going to fix this ASAP.
With xfce4-panel we also have the dirs, at least the doc dirs:
No need to add hicolor-icon-theme since it is required by gtk2.

imake is not required and libXt-devel BR is already included inside the
"%if "%fedora" > "4""-statement. Unfortunately this is not picked up by
mock on core 5 since it does not install the buildsys-macros-rpm. See
After fixing builtroots.xml the packge builds fine (again, the previous packages
are mock-builds too) in mock. AFAIK all builthosts install the macros correctly,
at least according to the logs of some of my latest builds where I'm using
selective specfiles, too.
* Mon Apr 10 2006 Christoph Wickert <fedora wickert at arcor de> - 1.0.0-2
- Fix description.
- Fix files section.
- Require xfce4-panel.
Ah ha. That macros thing was confusing me on some other mock builds too.
Once Xfce-4.4 comes out we will have to do something as you mentioned that this
plugin is part of xfce4-panel. Perhaps make this package
Requires: xfce4-panel < 4.4 ?
With that macro fix, builds fine under mock and all the blockers look to be
fixed up, so this package is APPROVED.
Thanks fpr the review, Kevin.
Imported and build for FC-4 and FC-5. Rawhide is hosed ATM. Closing.
