Description Joe Rozner 2007-05-13 11:37:08 EDT
Spec URL: http://deadbytes.net/packages/fedora/specs/mdbtools/mdbtools.spec
SRPM URL: http://deadbytes.net/packages/fedora/srpms/mdbtools-0.5-5.src.rpm

The MDB Tools project is a effort to document the MDB file format used in Microsoft's Access database package, and to provide a set of tools and applications to make that data available on other platforms.

Specifically, MDB Tools includes programs to export schema and data to other databases such as MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, PostgreSQL, and others.

Also included is a SQL engine for performing simple SQL queries. The 0.5 release includes an updated GUI interface (screenshot is available here). A sparse but functional ODBC driver is included as well.

MDB Tools currently has read-only support for Access 97 (Jet 3) and Access 2000/2002 (Jet 4) formats.
Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-05-22 00:01:21 EDT
looks like this is your first package submission to Fedora.
Comment 2 Joe Rozner 2007-05-22 00:24:20 EDT
sponsorship would help that along...
Comment 3 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-05-25 14:20:12 EDT
It seems that you are now sponsored (bug 232855)?
Comment 4 Jason Tibbitts 2007-06-27 22:34:35 EDT
This fails to build for me in mock (x86_64, rawhide):

+ desktop-file-install --vendor fedora --dir
/var/tmp/mdbtools-0.5-root-mockbuild/usr/share/applications --add-category
X-Fedora --delete-original
/var/tmp/mdbtools-0.5-root-mockbuild/usr/share/applications/gmdb.desktop: key
"Categories" is a list and does not have a semicolon as trailing character, fixing
error: value ";" for key "MimeType" in group "Desktop Entry" contains value ""
which does not look like a MIME type
desktop-file-install created an invalid desktop file!
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.94630 (%install)

Oops I did it again ... I submitted a review for a package already in review,
livinded, ping again ... do you want to continue with this package submission or
shall we close this and move forward with mine?
Comment 7 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-08-13 02:04:49 EDT
Closing as NOTABUG as one month and one week has passed since
the last ping by Jason (comment 5)
