Description Jesse Keating 2006-08-13 21:48:22 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/jkeating/extras/dates/dates.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/jkeating/extras/dates/dates-0.1-1.20060813svn.src.rpm

Dates is a small, lightweight calendar that uses Evolution Data Server as a
backend. Dates features an innovative, unified, zooming view and is designed
for use on primarily hand-held devices. It features both a ‘vanilla’ GTK
user interface and tailored support for the Nokia 770 maemo interface.

rpmlint complains about mixed tabs and spaces, but I'm having a hard time finding that.

Also, no docs for -devel but I think thats ignorable.
Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2006-08-13 22:06:17 EDT
When using dates, I discovered that it cannot display recurring events.  I've
filed a bug upstream: http://bugzilla.o-hand.com/show_bug.cgi?id=136

Wouldn't it be more appropriate to simply add the COPYING file to %doc in this case?

Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2006-08-14 07:57:03 EDT
COPYING is already in the main package, and the devel package requires the main
package.  Putting it in the devel package seems silly to me, and just fiddling
to make rpmlint happy on a warning.  If there are ever any development docs I'll
add them to the devel package, but for now there are hardly _ANY_ docs to speak of.
Comment 4 Brian Pepple 2006-08-14 10:57:32 EDT

* tarball verified against svn
* 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
* Desktop entry is fine
* All necessary BuildRequires listed.
* All desired features are enabled
* Make succeeds even when %{_smp_mflags} is defined
* Scriptlets look good.
* Files have appropriate permissions and owners
* Package installs and uninstalls cleanly on FC5
* rpmlint is basically clean. The warning about the devel package not having
docs can be ignored.

Dates has been built for extras-development.  Cheers!
