Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 13:10:59 EDT
Small things:

- People want a full source url

- Why do you have to set GCONF_DISABLE_MAKEFILE_SCHEMA_INSTALL if the package
  does not contain gconf schemata anyway ?

- python packages are supposed to define some python_sitearch thing up top
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 16:57:55 EDT
Looking good at first glance. The only thing I see right now is that shouldn't
include .la files. 

I'll go over the checklist later tonight or tomorrow.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 17:11:41 EDT
The package needs to own /usr/lib/bigboard and /usr/share/bigboard
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 17:43:21 EDT
COPYING says "see LICENSE", but there is no LICENSE file
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 17:50:11 EDT
Why does main.py live under /usr/libexec ? Can't that live under /usr/share, too ?
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 17:55:14 EDT
The packaging guidelines have a stupid rule about "every gui app needs a desktop
file" - you should just put a comment in the spec stating that bigboard does not
need one.
Comment 8 Colin Walters 2007-05-15 18:48:25 EDT
Squish squish, squish, (skip), squish.

On the libexec thing...it's an artifact of the current build/run system which I
am a bit loath to touch again.  Basically I had a lot of trouble getting things
so they could easily run both installed and uninstalled.

Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 23:47:32 EDT
I'm fine with things staying in libexec.

Going thru the checklist now:

- rpmlint is silent
- package name is ok
- spec file name is ok
- packaging guidelines are met
- license: GPL, ok
- license tag ok
- license text included in %doc
- spec file written in excellent, legible language
- upstream source ok
- locale handling n/a
- shared libs n/a
- not a relocatable package
- directory ownership: 
  still missing /usr/share/bigboard/stocks
- no duplicate files 
- file permissions: ok
- %clean section: ok
- consistent macro use: ok
- package content: ok
- large documentation: n/a
- %doc sanity: ok
- headers: n/a
- static libs n/a
- pkgconfig files: n/a
- shared libs: n/a
- la files: ok
- desktop file: ok
- ownership: ok
- %install cleans buildroot, ok
- filenames: ok

still waiting for my mock build to complete...


Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-16 00:02:42 EDT
mock build completed successfully, so BRs are ok, too

The only remaining issue is the unowned directory.
Comment 12 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-16 12:16:35 EDT
Looks good now. Approved.
