Description Ville Skyttä 2006-12-10 17:19:23 EST

dvdauthor is a program that will generate a DVD movie from a valid
mpeg2 stream that should play when you put it in a DVD player.
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2006-12-10 17:21:09 EST
spot, I think it wouldn't hurt to look at this from the FE-Legal POV as the
package touches the DVD and MPEG areas.  Could you have a look?
Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-12-10 23:27:00 EST
Better to have a dicussion on FE mailing list.
Comment 3 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2006-12-12 07:56:40 EST
I'll try to review this once legal doubts are cleared.
Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-01-06 23:54:40 EST
OK, so in looking at this:

- dvdauthor can't encode mpeg
- dvdauthor can't decode mpeg
- dvdauthor can't play mpeg (duh, it can't encode/decode)
- dvdauthor can mux/demux mpeg (this is how it gets into DVD format)
- dvdauthor can't decode encrypted DVDs

Since mux/demux is ok, this should be ok for Fedora. Lifting FE-Legal.
Comment 5 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2007-01-07 08:58:50 EST
 1. package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
 2. specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
 3. dist tag is present.
 4. build root is correct.
      %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
 5. license field matches the actual license.
 6. license is open source-compatible (GPL). License text included in package.
 7. source files match upstream:
    d2c45879e4cfb95d410bf603af891e07  dvdauthor-0.6.11.tar.gz
 8. latest version is being packaged.
 9. BuildRequires are proper.
10. package builds in mock (x86_64 devel).
11. rpmlint is silent.
12. final provides and requires are sane:

dvdauthor = 0.6.11-8.fc7

13. no shared libraries are present.
14. package is not relocatable.
15. owns the directories it creates.
16. doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
17. no duplicates in %files.
18. file permissions are appropriate.
19. %clean is present.
20. %check is not present and no testsuite.
21. no scriptlets present.
22. code, not content.
23. documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
24. %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
25. no headers.
26. no pkgconfig files.
27. no libtool .la droppings.
28. not a GUI app.
29. not a web app.
