Comment 1 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-20 12:48:49 EDT
Brian, are you reviewing this package ? Anyway here's my take at it (can't harm
to have more people for review)

Needs work:
* BuildRequires: gettext is missing (required by the %find_lang macro)
* /usr/share/info/dir is already owned by info, don't own it (put 
  %{_datadir}/info/*.info.gz in %files for example)
* Scriptlets: missing "install-info" in %post and %preun (in the wiki:

* Version and Source1 are not properly lined-up (tabs instead of spaces)
* Duplicate BuildRequires: gtk2-devel (by libglade2-devel)
* At the end of ./configure, there is "Gnome support: no". Is that what you want
? From http://gnubiff.sourceforge.net, GNOME support could be useful. Perhaps a
missing "BuildRequires: gnome-panel-devel" only ?

Mock build log failure

Your package fails to build in Mock.  Also, you can drop the BR on
gettext-devel, since the default build environment in Mock installs gettext.

Comment 5 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-23 07:53:08 EDT
Everything looks OK, but how about enabling GNOME support ? It looks like it can
be embedded in the panel this way. It'd be a nice feature to have IMHO.

By the way, version 2.2.1 is out.

In addition to the GNOME support, it looks like it also has some SSL/crypto
support that would be worthwile to enable.

Comment 7 Damien Durand 2006-05-23 13:11:43 EDT
- Upgrade to 2.2.1
- Add --prefix='pkg-config libpanelapplet-2.0 openssl --variable=prefix in %con$
- Add gnome-panel-devel, openssl-devel in BuildRequires

8d2ef679f42e7a593dc88b750d0cca4c  gnubiff-2.2.1.tar.gz

* Source URL is canonical
* Upstream source tarball verified
* Package name conforms to the Fedora Naming Guidelines
* Group Tag is from the official list
* Buildroot has all required elements
* All paths begin with macros
* All directories are owned by this or other packages
* All necessary BuildRequires listed.
* All desired features are enabled
* Package builds in Mock.
* Package installs and uninstalls cleanly on FC5.
* rpmlint produces no error.

* Don't pass '--prefix=`pkg-config libpanelapplet-2.0 openssl
--variable=prefix`' to the %configure macro.  It's not needed.

* In the file section, '%{_datadir}/info' should be '%{_infodir}'.  Refer to
* Unnecessary documentation: ABOUT-NLS & Changelog.  The first is a generic
build tools file, and the second is duplicate information that is included in
the NEWS file.

Once these items are fixed, considered this approved.

Comment 9 Damien Durand 2006-05-24 00:11:53 EDT
- Remove --prefix='pkg-config libpanelapplet-2.0 openssl --variable=prefix OK
- Remove ABOUT-NLS & Changelog in %file section OK
- Fixing %{_datadir}/info to {_infodir} OK
