You missed to use desktop-file-install command in SPEC to install .desktop files.
See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#desktop

Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-12 02:33:09 EDT
It will be good if you avoid hardcoding version and name in SOURCE URL

You can do that at time of importing a package. so for now I am approving this.

Comment 5 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-03-12 03:24:01 EDT
From a quick look at -2 spec file it seems
that %{_datadir}/giggle/glade/ is not owned by any package.
Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-12 03:36:17 EDT
Oops my eyes missed to catch that.
Thanks for catching that.
Comment 7 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-03-12 03:47:59 EDT
Okay, other things I noticed is that:
* perhaps "AUTHORS" should be added to %doc
* category "Application" (in desktop file) is deprecated and
  should be removed.
Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-12 05:08:44 EDT
Looks wiki page http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#desktop
needs some cleanup on Category as not to have Application issue.
