Comment 1 Benjamin Lewis 2008-02-10 13:52:19 EST
I'm not sponsored so I can't approve this, but from what I can see it meets
every requirement. The only changes I would make are that the word 'providing'
should be replaced with 'for' in the summary and description, and 'preview'
should be 'previews', also in the description.

Source file match upstream: YES
Package meets versioning and naming guidelines: YES
Specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently: YES

No duplicates in %files: YES
File permissions are appropriate: YES
No scriptlets present: YES
Code, not content: YES

No headers: YES
No pkgconfig files: YES
No libtool .la droppings: YES
Comment 2 Benjamin Lewis 2008-02-10 14:15:30 EST
Further to the above:

Forgot to mention that rpmlint is complaining about:

pic2aa.i386: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/pic2aa-0.2.1/COPYING
pic2aa.i386: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/pic2aa-0.2.1/AUTHORS
on the binary RPM. Also, after a conversation in #fedora-devel, I think that
specspo handles translations, so I'm not sure if these should be in the spec.
Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2008-02-10 14:29:34 EST
You can use iconv to convert it into UTF-8



iconv --from=ISO-8859-1 --to=UTF-8 file.txt > file.txt.utf8
mv file.txt.utf8 file.txt

   Thanks for having a look at this package and your review. But, I see that 
"Fedora user tc1415, aka Benjamin Tomos Lewis <ben.lewis@benl.co.uk> has requested
membership in the cvsextras group and needs a sponsor."
So, its good to review other's packages but you fist get sponsorship and then
start changing fedora-review flags. removing fedora-review+ and taking this for

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-02-11 04:04:53 EST
1)I see that timestamp of upstream tarball is preserved.
upstream tarball ->
-rw-r--r-- 1 parag parag 156379 2005-02-15 17:42 pic2aa-0.2.1.tar.gz
tarball in SRPM ->
-rw-rw-r-- 1 parag parag 156379 2008-02-10 15:10 pic2aa-0.2.1.tar.gz

2) Change comment in desktop file to what new summary is now.

3)So you took screenshot posted on upstream web site as icon. Not sure if there
will be any licensing issue for using that screenshot as icon for desktop.
  But looks ok as upstream is not providing any desktop file and icon file and
to use that screenshot as icon file.

4) Can you add comment in PL language also in .desktop file?
