Description Marcela Mašláňová 2008-01-02 15:49:48 UTC
Please review separated hmtl manual package for tcl.


Comment 1 Wart 2008-01-02 16:48:18 UTC
* The Provides: line is not needed, since this package doesn't actually provide
  any code.
* download urls for sourceforge are best listed as:
  URL:  http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/tcl/tcl%{version}-html.tar.gz
  ...instead of using a hardcoded mirror.
* The RPM group would be more accurate as 'Documentation'
* A proper 'index.html' index page would be useful.  A simple one can 
  be created in either %prep or %build as a symlink to point to 'contents.htm'
  ln -s html/contents.htm html/index.html
* Minor nitpick:  I've been told by others that it's good to have
  an empty %build and %install section in the spec file instead
  of leaving them out.  Apparently there are some rpm corner cases that
  will choke if they sections are missing.  In these cases, I usually do

# Nothing to build.

# Nothing to install.

Comment 2 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-01-03 08:31:18 UTC
With %build part is rpm failing. The other commands were fine. Thank you for
letting me know about it.

Check the new rpm for changes.

Comment 3 Wart 2008-01-11 18:04:06 UTC
Looks good.  rpmlint is happy, the sources match upstream, and most of the other
packaging guidelines don't apply to this documentation-only package.
