Description: Collection of filters for various printer drivers

This is a meta-package that depends on all available printer filters.
Installing it via tool that resolves dependencies, such as yum or anaconda,
ensures that all printer drivers available from foomatic package that
require external filters will work.

Note: This package is a part of the ongoing effort to extend hardware
support by fixing the foomatic drivers that actually refer to external

Rpmlint output and justification:

$ rpmlint /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/printer-drivers-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
W: printer-drivers no-documentation

The printer drivers themselves may contain documentation.

$ rpmlint /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS/printer-drivers-1.0-1.src.rpm
E: printer-drivers no-cleaning-of-buildroot %install
E: printer-drivers no-cleaning-of-buildroot %clean
E: printer-drivers no-buildroot-tag

The package doesn't build -- no build root.

W: printer-drivers no-%prep-section
W: printer-drivers no-%build-section
W: printer-drivers no-%install-section
W: printer-drivers no-%clean-section

The very same applies.

This might be easy to review, as it's short, though it is somehow atypical.
I'd appreciate comments on whether there is a better way to make a depend-only
package very much.
Comment 3 Lubomir Kundrak 2007-07-04 08:45:17 EDT
Tim Waugh suggested avoiding the 'printer-drivers' to avoid confusion with
Mandriva's package with that name.

So the new files are here:

Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/lkundrak/SPECS/printer-filters.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/lkundrak/SRPMS/printer-filters-1.0-1.src.rpm
Comment 4 Marek Mahut 2007-07-25 14:49:33 EDT
This meta-package looks sane.

Comment 5 Lubomir Kundrak 2007-07-26 04:44:07 EDT
