Comment 1 Michał Bentkowski 2006-11-16 14:35:57 EST
I think this package may be approved, the only problem is a lack of license file
so I'm not able to check if aquamarine is really GPL ;)
I'll do a full review later.
Comment 2 Michał Bentkowski 2006-11-16 14:51:57 EST
MUST items:
 * rpmlint output:
W: aquamarine no-documentation
 (no documentation provided by upstream)
 * package is named well
 * spec file name is good
 * package meets Packaging Guidelines
?* package is licensed with an GPL open-source compatible license
?* License field in spec file matches actual license 
 * license file isn't included in %doc
 * no upstream release, unable to check md5
 * package successfully compiles on x86_64
 * BuildRequires listed well (mock builds successfully)
 * no locales
 * no need to %post and %postun sections
 * not relocatable
 * no duplicates in %files
 * every %files section includes %defattr
 * proper %clean section
 * macros used well

License is not included in a package, I couldn't find any reliable site
to check its license. Thus, if you show me a place where the license's written,
I'll be happy to approve this package :)

Only place I'm seeing anything about the license is currently in the source code
itself (src/aquamarine.cpp):

So it *is* GPL, they just haven't got around to putting evidence of that
somewhere sensible yet. :)

Also, there's a new build that has trimmed down BR (needs beryl-core-devel >=

mock build suceeds on FC-devel i386.

  This is not needed to be written as libraries' dependency

Comment 5 Jarod Wilson 2006-11-17 13:52:34 EST
New build, removes Requires: on qt and kdelibs, relies on auto-gen'd lib deps.
