Description Andrea Veri 2006-05-23 19:05:33 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.netservers.org/packages/rpm/v2strip.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.netservers.org/packages/rpm/v2strip-0.2.10-1.src.rpm
Description: Little utility that removes ID3v2 tags from MP3 files.
The new ID3v2 tag format is nice in many ways, but it can cause
confusion when parsed by certain MP3 players/utilities not yet
supporting ID3v2 tags.

Review for this package:


- Package in non-standard group (Applications/Shell), see:

- The application don't need the 'openssl-devel' BuildRequires. (Why?)

- You must include the COPYING file in %doc's %files. It contains the license 
of the application (GPL).

- ChangeLog should be in %doc too.


- When creating a new specfile, the recommended way is to create using the 
following command:

  fedora-newrpmspec <package-name>

- (Really minor) The arrangement in the specfile could be better. Spacing and 
these things. The 'fedora-newrpmspec' helps on this. You can look at other 
specs too. Just to get the specfile more organized and pretty :-)

- (Really minor) Description is ok. Consider putting "v2strip is a ..." before 
the description field. Example: "v2strip is a little utility that removes 


- Source package matches the package from upstream
- Builds and works fine
- Package name ok

* Package in non-standard group (Applications/Shells), see:


* You can drop the NEWS from the docs, since it appears to have the same
information as the Changelog file.
* Shouldn't refer to the package name in Summary.  A better one might be 'ID3v2
tag remover'.

- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines
- license (GPL) OK, text in %doc, matches source

- no locales

- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs

Short, sweet, simple.
