Description Pavel Shevchuk 2008-04-14 15:04:12 UTC
Spec URL: http://rpm.scwlab.com/ecore-goes-rawhide/ecore.spec
SRPM URL: http://rpm.scwlab.com/ecore-goes-rawhide/ecore-
RPMs for i386 and x86_64 built in mock: http://rpm.scwlab.com/ecore-goes-rawhide/

Ecore is the event/X abstraction layer that makes doing selections,
Xdnd, general X stuff, event loops, timeouts and idle handlers fast,
optimized, and convenient.

RPMLint is silent on all RPMs i built.
License is a bit customized, but Tom "spot" Callawayin from fedora-legal-list said it's MIT ( https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-legal-list/2008-April/msg00020.html )
I've been able to successfully use rpms built in mock on different machine to built software against this library.

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2008-05-02 20:12:41 UTC
In the configure output there is
  Ecore_Evas SDL Support.......: no
Maybe something is missing from the evas build?

I think it would be better to break a bit the BuildRequires line in more
lines, and break at 80 columns (if possible).

2 man pages are without prefix, I think it is bad:

I think it would be better to use
rm doc/man/man3/todo.3
such that if tere is no such man page, it is detected.

In ecore-x.pc there is an unneeded -L/usr/X11R6/lib, but I 
don't think it needs to be fixed: it doesn't hurt and it is for static 
linking which is not possible anyway.

None of these issues are blockers. So

* rpmlint is silent
* follow guidelines
* free software, license included
* match upstream:
a66df2b5f0b1a6abc47bb50bf2b26846  ecore-
* library correctly packaged
* %files section right


Please consider my comments before importing.

Comment 3 Pavel Shevchuk 2008-05-02 20:39:55 UTC
I intentionally left out SDL support. For Fedora target audience (desktop and 
developers) XRender + native OpenGL + DirectFB acceleration backends are enough.

Will fix BuildRequires line before importing.

Thanks for fast review.
