Administrative tools for the K Desktop Environment (KDE), including:
kcron, kdat, knetworkconf, kpackage, ksysv, kuser.
* Mon Jun 05 2006 Rex Dieter <rexdieter[AT]users.sf.net> 7:3.5.3-2
- cleanup for Extras
- %%doc: AUTHORS COPYING README, app docs (README, TODO, etc...)
- follow icon spec
- use default(upstream) kdesu instead of usermode(gtk).
* Fri Jun 02 2006 Than Ngo <firstname.lastname@example.org> 7:3.5.3-1
- update to 3.5.3
* Missing dependancy on update-desktop-database for %post (package
* Missing dependancy on update-desktop-database for %postun (package
* The package contains libtool archive files (*.la)
* Many of the desktop files don't follow the
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#desktop packaging guidelines.
* Duplicate BuildRequires: bzip2-devel (by kdelibs-devel)

Last I knew, ScriptletSnippets said not to add any (new) dependancies for this.

The ones included here are required.

I refer you to the comment in the specfile (:
# FIXME/TODO: get dfi to shut-the-hell-up about KDE's *valid/legit* use of

kdeadmin *directly* uses/requires bzip2-devel(1), so relying upon implicit deps
of other packages is bad/unwise.
(1) OK, not directly, but is needed because rpm-devel currently lacks

Rechecked, and it's still there, even though it says *eventually* the
dependancy shouldn't be required. I'll see if I can get that fixed for good.
In the meantime, if you consider this a deal-breaker Review-wise, I can
(temporarily at least) add the Requires(post,postun): desktop-file-utils
Re comment #4: That sounds reasonable. From a practical point of view its not
like this RPM isn't well tested.
One more todo then consider this approved:
- Please add a URL tag even if it is just to the kde.org main site
- Meets naming guidelines
- Includes GPL license
- Spec file is clean
- Source matches upstream
- Builds in mock against devel on i386
- Uses %findlang
- Dir ownership for some of these dir's is a bit strange but matches current
conventions. If someone wants to comment on this further go ahead.
- %files section is sane
- RPMLINT (See below)

I forgot to formally approve this package. Add URL tag and this one's ready.
i have reviewed and merged the change. Please take a look
at kdeadmin-3.5.6-2.fc7 in rawhide.
Whats the status on this? Can we resolv it? Its been re-opened.
As far as I understand, merge reviews (which this really is) need to stay open
until the package in question been merged into Extras' cvs.
closing per comment #7 (no need to wait for merge)
