1. rpmlint says:

xfce4-gsynaptics-mcs-plugin-debuginfo.x86_64: E: description-line-too-long This
package provides debug information for package xfce4-gsynaptics-mcs-plugin.

Just due to the length of package name I guess. Ignore.

No other issues that I see here, so this package is APPROVED.

Thanks a lot. 

(In reply to comment #2)
> OK - Should build on all supported archs

I just realized that it does not build on ppc64 because there are no
(g)synaptics packages on these arches, see bug # 242323. So I added
  ExclusiveArch: %{ix86} x86_64 ppc
and a few comments on that like Thorsten did in bug #169795.

Packages for F-7, F-8 and devel have been built. Closing.

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2008-03-16 15:29:26 EDT
xfce4-gsynaptics-mcs-plugin-1.0.0-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 10 Christoph Wickert 2008-07-26 20:57:07 EDT
Since both gsynaptics and xfce4-gsynaptics-mcs-plugin are available for ppc64 in
>= F-8 now I'm removing the blocker on bug #238953.
Comment 11 Christoph Wickert 2008-07-26 22:00:20 EDT
I'd like to rename the upcoming build of this package to
xfce-mcs-plugin-gsynaptics. Rationale: To be consistent with other the rest of
the mcs-plugins. We already have xfce-mcs-plugins, xfce-mcs-plugins-extra is in
review and more plugins are planned (for example my xfce-mcs-plugin-pavucontrol).

You might want to take a look at the new spec to make sure all
Provides/Obsoletes are correct, so here it is:

Package Change Request
New Package Name: xfce-mcs-plugin-gsynaptics
Comment 12 Kevin Fenzi 2008-07-28 12:11:59 EDT
ok, I will create the new package name, can you follow the package end of life
procedures for the old name? 


Did you just want devel here? Or also F8/F9? 
Comment 13 Christoph Wickert 2008-07-28 14:38:13 EDT
Sorry for not being more precise. devel is enough, I don't want to make this
change in a stable release. TIA!
Comment 14 Kevin Fenzi 2008-07-28 16:24:10 EDT
cvs done.
