These servers provide remote telescope control of some popular telescopes.
These servers run stand-alone, but are designed to interface with stellarium.

1. You should not use a _ in the name... from the PackageNamingGuidelines:
"When naming packages for Fedora, the maintainer should use the dash '-' as the
delimiter for name parts. The maintainer should NOT use an underscore '_',
a plus '+', or a period '.' as a delimiter." There are some exceptions after that,
do you think this meets one of those? I think it would be nice to use a -
2. The included source seems to already contain the compiled binaries, so the
build says: "make: Nothing to be done for `all'." and uses the included binaries.
Please make a clean source checkout and make sure there are no included binaries.
3. rpmlint says:
E: telescope-server-debuginfo empty-debuginfo-package
Looks like the Makefile strips the binaries. Can you patch it not to do so?
LDFLAGS = -s
Also, can you confirm it's using RPM_OPT_FLAGS for compiling?
4. Is the versioning right here?
Shouldn't it be:
Then the next version for any package change would be:
1) would you prefer telescope-server or just telescopeserver?
2) I'm an idiot
3) I'll poke at the Makefile
I'll see if I can patch the makefile to use $RPM_OPT_FLAGS
4) yeah i think i did goof up the release numbering. First time I had to do an
Does this fix all the issues? I think its pulling in the RPM_OPT_FLAGS correctly
now, and blanked the LDFLAGS. I've addressed the naming and release numbering.
look in http://jspaleta.thecodergeek.com/Fedora%20SRPMS/telescope-server/
for the mock build
(In reply to comment #3):
Yeah, that appears to solve all the issues I was seeing.
I don't see any further blockers, so this package is APPROVED.
Don't forget to close this RAWHIDE once its been imported and built.
New Package CVS Request

Branches: devel, FC-6
Package Change Request
Package Name: stellarium

Shouldn't this review request be closed?
You'll see from the bug activity that it was closed... the package change request
from comment 7 re-opened the ticket. I don't know exactly why a change request
for stellarium was put into the telescope-server review ticket. The request has
been processed... so the bug can be re-closed. Feel free to slap Jochen around
with a wet trout for re-opening a review ticket assigned to you.
