Description: Enlightenment is a next-generation window manager. It does not use any advanced X extensions available on some new XServers yet, as it is striving to be backwards-compatible to all XServers even on the oldest machines. It is designed to not just use new features, but to also work on small, limited processing power devices as well as the most powerful of today's desktop and server processors.

spec looks good, builds OK on FC5. md5sum is happy
would be nice to have the menus sync with Gnome, but that aside, e17 works as
If you can confirm the output of rpmlint is OK, then I can approve it.
i am probably extending my xdg menu generator to support e17... having menus in
sync needs actual code to be written.
note: theres currently no wm besides fluxbox (which uses my generator) that has
menus generated according to the fdo specs.
i just hacked up a new version of the menu gen. it has an additional helper
application using inotify to monitor changes with the menu and spawn a regen of
the menu once it happens (push system instead pull system).
i also looked at the way e17 menus are done... its definitely possible to hack
something up in quite short time.
i will get back to you on irc if you are on later tonight ignacio. Starting to
write a prototype this evening.
prototype is done... a bit shaky yet... though
fully localized menu generated according to the fdo specs
optional prototype using inotify for makeing menu generation a push service
id love to discuss further integration with you on irc if you are back on ignacio.
maybe just drop me a quick email.
Any progress on this package?
actually i am also looking for ignacio (i heard hes pretty involved atm) to get
review/input/patches for the menu gen. do you know python micheal? If so i could
attach the prototype here.. actually it was you requesting proper menus :)
No, I doubt I would be suitable to review and comment on someone's python code.
I only said it would be nice to have the menus sync with gnome and kde, however,
its not a review requirement that I am aware of.
Ignacio has confirmed that the rpmlint is OK, so as far as I am concerned its
good to go.
I am awaiting the import before I close this request.
The menu gen tool should probably be filed as a bug against e17 (once imported
and built) as an enhancement, since its e17 is not dependent on it to work.
Any movement on this?
Review for release 1:
* RPM name is OK
* Source enlightenment-0.16.999.026.tar.gz is the same as upstream
* This is nolonger the latest version (.028)
* BuildRequires: gettext is missing (required to build the translations)
* Build failed in mock due to missing gettext
* Duplicate BuildRequires: libidn-devel (by curl-devel)
No feed back from submitter since 2006-04-25, two months now.
#9 .028 needs some of the deps updated aswell to build successful
Due to the submitter going MIA. I am closing this review.
I will resubmit the package for review.
