=== Issues ===
1. There is a minor cosmetic fix needed in order to make rpmlint happier: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 30, tab: line 18)
2. The spec does not use parallel build. If it is not supported, please note it in the spec, otherwise please use it.
3. There are some duplicate BRs:
glib2-devel (by pango-devel), automake (by gtk2-devel), pango-devel (by gtk2-devel), gtk2-devel (by gtksourceview2-devel), pygobject2-devel (by pygtk2-devel), pygtk2-devel (by pygtksourceview-devel), gtksourceview2-devel (by pygtksourceview-devel), autoconf (by automake). You can also ditch which, according to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Exceptions_2 it is supposed to be in the minimum build environment. However I will not object if you choose to leave them in.

=== Final Notes ===
1. Could you please let me know which part of the application is licensed under GFDL? All references I have found in the source are for GPLv2+.

I just thought to volunteer what I think would be an improvement of the spec which covers all suggested objections.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2013-01-31 09:16:40 EST
- there's redundant whitespace changes in %changelog. You shouldn't touch changelog, imo - otherwise, it looses its log nature

- i'm not sure the file list changes are an improvement - if you list files explicitly, you notice if something goes missing. globbing makes you vulnerable to silent loss of stuff

- the rest looks fine to me

The patch was pushed, there's been no further discussion. I think it's safe to say this is done.
