Please put an url to your spec file in 
Spec URL:
and an url to the srpm file in 

and also provide a description (in general the same than what appears 
in %description in the spec file). 

The enclosing <> are not needed.

If you are unsure, look at other reviews.

thommi: As far as I can tell, that Spec URL contains no actual .spec file for
the RPM, and the SRPM link points to a binary RPM. Please ensure that you link
us to a full .spec file and a source RPM instead. Thanks.

I can't find your email as a member of the cvsextras group, so it looks like you
need to be sponsored.  Here are some links to read about becoming sponsored and
contributing to fedora extras:

files are uploaded, can you add it to the distribution ?

Installing the ebuild
NOTE: This requires ncrypt to be installed

Set up a portage overlay:

# mkdir /usr/local/portage

# echo "/usr/local/portage >> /etc/make.conf 

Create portage directories:

# mkdir /usr/local/portage/app-crypt

# mkdir /usr/local/portage/app-crypt/cspace

Download the ebuild (or move it to this directory) 

# cd /usr/local/portage/app-crypt/cspace 

# wget http://www.aabdalla.com/cspace.com/cspace-0.1_alpha.ebuild

Digest the ebuild:

# ebuild cspace-0.1_alpha.ebuild digest

Emerge cspace:

# emerge -av cspace

Run cspace:

# cspace

You seem to be confused. This is not Gentoo, but Fedora. Please post a link to
both the proposed spec file and src.rpm. You'll be able to import the package
yourself after it passes review and after you're sponsored. Have you read the
articles you were pointed to in comment #6 ?
Comment 14 Christian Iseli 2007-01-17 17:56:34 EST
New packages will land in devel, not FC3
Comment 16 Kevin Fenzi 2007-06-01 23:42:19 EDT
thommi: Do you still wish to submit this package and maintain it in Fedora? 

Perhaps you would like to instead add it to the wishlist for someone to package? 
It seems it also requires the ncrypt package, so you would need to submit that

I will go ahead and close this in 1 week unless I hear back from you. 
Comment 17 Kevin Fenzi 2007-06-08 23:58:08 EDT
