Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-01-18 14:01:49 EST
Spec URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/kscope.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/kscope-1.6.1-1.fc9.src.rpm
KScope is a KDE front-end to Cscope. It provides a source-editing
environment for large C projects, such as the Linux kernel.

KScope is by no means intended to be a replacement to any of the leading
Linux/KDE IDEs, such as KDevelop. First of all, it is not an Integrated
Development Environment: it does not provide the usual write/compile/debug
cycle supported by most IDE's. Instead, KScope is focused on source
editing and analysis.
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-01-18 15:54:24 EST
2 Quick-n-dirty suggestions
1.  use desktop-file-install on .desktop file, with final location being 
(something like): %_datadir/applications/kde/kscope.desktop
(you may need to add a category or 2).
2.  drop Requires: kdelibs-common 
(it'll get pulled in by the default kde runtime pkgs)
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-01-18 15:55:06 EST
I'll get started on more of the formal stuff in a bit...
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-01-18 16:14:57 EST
3.  SHOULD: drop libtool hacks, use
%configure --disable-rpath 

4.  MUST: add missing BR: kdebase3-devel (links against libkate from 

src.rpm and locally built x86_64 pkgs are rpmlint clean (other than harmless 
warning about dangling ../common symlink).

tested local built rpm, app launches/runs ok.

Consider 1-4, and I'll approve this.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-01-18 16:16:54 EST
submitted scratch build (w/ items 3,4 fixed) for giggles:
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-01-20 16:17:53 EST
Close enough, APPROVED.

1 small thing (I'll leave it to you to address before building anything) 
regarding d-f-i usage, you used:
--vendor="fedora" ... --dir $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/applications/kde
in effect having 2 vendors (fedora prefix + kde dir prefix), I'd suggest using
--vendor="" ... --dir $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/applications/kde

New Package CVS Request
Package Name: kscope
Short Description: KDE front-end to Cscope
Owners: spot
Branches: F-7 F-8 EL-4 EL-5 
Cvsextras Commits: yes
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2008-01-20 17:06:58 EST
noting the request for epel branches: only fedora kde packages include Provides
for kdelibs3/kdebase3, for rhel, you'll need kdelibs/kdebase, respectively.
