- package name follows guidelines : OK
- spec file name follows guidelines : OK

- Summary: ends with a dot and is probably too long : NOK
  suggestion : Summary: Pidgin plugin for xfire network
- Source URL is good and tarball match upstream : OK
- License: is correct, is allowed in Fedora and match sources : OK
- Text of license is packaged : OK
- BuildRoot: is correct : OK
- Typos in Description : s/incrimenting/incrementing/
  This package not supported by the official Xfire team : missing 'is' and
missing period.
- Static libs are removed : OK
- Macros are used consistently : OK
- Don't package INSTALL file, it's empty : NOK
- Don't package NEWS file, it's mostly empty and point to CHANGELOG
- BuildRequires: and Requires: are correct : OK
- Spec file is legible : OK 
- Builds fine on i386 : OK
- Rpmlint output will be clean once you've removed the empty INSTALL file and
fixed the Summary:

This is not a fully valid review, as I'm also looking for a sponsor, but I hope
it helps.
Comment 2 Brendan Ross 2007-10-30 16:16:36 EDT
I asked about packaging in #fedora-devel. If anybody else wants to package this,
be my guest. I won't comment on why I won't package things.
