SRPM URL: http://www.poolshark.org/src/guiloader-c++-2.8.0-1.src.rpm
GuiLoader/C++ is a C++ binding to GuiLoader library. It is a
convenience layer that simplifies development of GuiLoader based
applications written in C++ language by introducing exception safety,
binding GTK+ objects defined in GuiXml to C++ variables and type-safe
dynamic connection to signals.
Like guiloader, this package is part of the Gideon project (GUI designer for C++ Gtk2/Gnome apps) and used to be part of the gideon tarball.
I will review this later.
Well, the review of this package:
1. From http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines :
2. From http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines :
* Packages containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires: pkgconfig'
- So, add "Requires: pkgconfig" to -devel package.
Fix the pkgconfig issue above. Other things are okay.
This package (guiloader-c++) is APPROVED by me.
pkgconfig Requires added. Imported and built. thanks!!
This packages was never build for Fedora and then it was marked as 'dead'.
Project URL: http://sourceforge.net/projects/crow-designer/
Current version: 2.12.1
Can you please update the spec file and build it for Fedora? Thanks.
- The license has changed from GPL to MIT.
- Devel requirement 'Requires: pkgconfig' is still missing
- There are translation (at least in the latest version) 'BuildRequires: gettext' is missing
Denis seemed to have some reason not to build this package (see the content
of dead.package in Fedora CVS).
As it is already long time since this package is not build, if this package
is to be imported into Fedora again a new review request is needed and
it must be reviewed newly. If you want to maintain this package please
submit a new review request and mark this review request a duplicate
of the new one.
Right, crow/gideon was abandoned by upstream before it was completed. It was abandoned after the author went on a insulting spree on the gnome mailing list, then later apologized. A very weird story all in all. There have been some sporadic updates since then, but the upstream website still claims the project is "no longer under active development".
I've just released ownership of both guiloader's in packagedb. Feel free to reclaim them and submit a new review if you're interested.
