Comment 1 Rafał Psota 2008-01-19 10:34:17 EST
Could someone review this package?
Comment 2 manuel wolfshant 2008-01-19 14:41:25 EST
I suggest to take a look at the review (and mostly at the recommendations
available over there) of youtube-dl.

Two short observations regarding your spec:
- The original "package" does not include a license as a separate file;
according to
neither are you allowed to include the license as a separate file
- According to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines your
version and release tags are not correct. I suggest to ditch the "0" you have
used as version and replace it with 2007.10.09; start with 1 as release tag
(which can further be incremented, should the package need modifications but
within the same version). 
- As %doc you could use a copy of the page from

Comment 3 manuel wolfshant 2008-01-19 14:51:04 EST
And by the way
- your description line is 86 chars, which makes rpmlint unhappy
- you could use cp -p / install -p to preserve the timestamp of the original script

Note that you have forgotten to update the online spec. The src.rpm is OK.
