Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2006-11-06 13:17:51 EST
Spec URL: http://hircus.org/fedora/vala/vala.spec
SRPM URL: http://hircus.org/fedora/vala/vala-0.0.5-1.src.rpm
Description:
Vala is a new programming language that aims to bring modern programming
language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional
runtime requirements and without using a different ABI compared to
applications and libraries written in C.

valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates
Vala source code into C source and header files. It uses the GObject
type system to create classes and interfaces declared in the Vala source
code. It's also planned to generate GIDL files when gobject-
introspection is ready.

The syntax of Vala is similar to C#, modified to better fit the GObject
type system.

* source files match upstream

ec3c9b717c49bd4fb207d368fe296475  vala-0.0.5.tar.bz2.1
* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.

W: vala-devel no-documentation
* %check is not present; There is some test code in the distribution but no
framework to actually run the tests.
* shared libraries are present; ldconfig is called properly.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* scriptlets are OK
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* headers are in the -devel subpackage.
* unversioned .so file is in the -devel subpackage.
* pkconfig file in in the -devel subpackage
