Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-20 17:28:49 EST
Not a review, but a packaging issue to fix: build produces a useless debuginfo
package due to use of "install -s" in the specfile; dropping the two occurrences
of -s fixes it.
Comment 2 Peter Vrabec 2007-02-26 04:10:30 EST
fixed in dosfstools-2.11-7.
Comment 3 Fabian Affolter 2008-12-08 05:18:54 EST
- '/sbin/' should be replaced with a macro -> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/CreatingPackageHowTo#Macros 

- ChangeLog and COPYING needs to be included in %doc

- 3.0.1 is out ( http://www.daniel-baumann.ch/software/dosfstools/ )
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-12-23 23:27:51 EST
1)I see latest upstream release is 3.0.1 you can build new package in rawhide.
2) you can include ChangeLog and COPYING by adding
mv COPYING ChangeLog doc/
to %prep

Comment 6 Peter Vrabec 2009-01-19 05:51:28 EST

/sbin/ was not replaced, since there is no macro for that. All packages that place their files in /sbin use "/sbin".

I'm removing myself from CC list and assigning kasal as a new maintainer of dosfstools, see:
Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2009-01-19 23:33:43 EST
As already suggested in comment #4 and from %files section it will not be good to have this package installing 2 directories

That should be either one.
Please update SPEC and build new package.

Best you can do as suggested in comment #4 is to write 
mv COPYING ChangeLog doc/
to %prep
