Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2008-01-04 06:13:45 EST
Spec URL: http://www.geocities.com/fatema_mhs/libnova.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.geocities.com/fatema_mhs/libnova.spec
Libnova is a general purpose, double precision, celestial mechanics, 
astrometry and astrodynamics library
Comment 1 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2008-01-04 06:17:11 EST
Sorry about the wrong links:
Spec URL: http://www.geocities.com/fatema_mhs/libnova.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.geocities.com/fatema_mhs/libnova-0.12.1-0.fc8.src.rpm
Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-04 06:47:29 EST
1) Review guidelines suggests that 
- MUST: Packages containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires: pkgconfig' (for
directory ownership and usability).
   and as -devel package does not provide any .pc you should drop that.
2) Under %files section of -devel change following line 
  this will ensure that packages owns this directory also. Otherwise it will be
owning only %{_includedir}/libnova/*.h files

3)This package contains COPYING which is main file for any package so add it to
%doc for libnova and libnova-devel 
License tag should be here LGPLv2+

4) good to add examples/*.c to %doc of %files section of -devel

Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-07 03:37:10 EST
This package does not follow compiler flags as per 
==> use make command in spec as
make CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS"  %{?_smp_mflags}
