Description: Greyhounds is a greyhound racing and breeding game. Your goal is to
acquire fast and talented greyhounds and be successful with them in the
races; your two possibilities for doing so are breeding and trading.
Ultimately you should aim at winning the Champions' Trophy. You might
also consider establishing a record that lasts to the end of times a
worthy goal.

1. Not that it matters much, but upstream uses 'pre-alpha' instead of 'prealpha'

2. Can you ask upstream to clarify the license?
The README file has "The game is GPL-licensed."
None of the source files contain any licensing information.
That would seem to imply "GPL+" (ie, any version of the GPL).

3. Oddly, the Source0 url should probibly be:
Comment 3 Krzysztof Kurzawski 2008-02-16 02:58:34 EST
Spec URL: http://kurzawa.nonlogic.org/rpm/greyhounds/greyhounds.spec

If I set release "0.1.pre-alpha%{?dist}" rpmbuild warns:
error: line 3: Illegal char '-' in release: Release:        0.1.pre-alpha.fc8 so
what should I do?
Comment 4 Krzysztof Kurzawski 2008-02-16 08:18:14 EST
Upstream said that license is GPLv2.

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2008-02-16 22:05:41 EST
The package from comment #4 looks all good to me... 

This package is APPROVED. 

Just out of curiosity, is upstream planning further development? 
The upstream source seems to have last been updated in 2003. ;(
