Review Request: ecore - Event/X abstraction layer
Last modified: 2008-05-02 23:19:07 EDT
Spec URL: http://rpm.scwlab.com/ecore-goes-rawhide/ecore.spec
SRPM URL: http://rpm.scwlab.com/ecore-goes-rawhide/ecore-0.9.9.042-1.fc9.src.rpm
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.
* Fri May 02 2008 Pavel "Stalwart" Shevchuk <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 0.9.9.042-2
- Fixed ecore-devel dependencies
- Fixed timestamp of source tarball
- Preserve timestamps of installed files
- Added html docs
Docs are fixed for multilib
New spec: http://rpm.scwlab.com/ecore-goes-rawhide/ecore.spec
New SRPM: http://rpm.scwlab.com/fedora/e/9/ecore-0.9.9.042-2.x86_64/
Built RPMs: http://rpm.scwlab.com/fedora/e/9/
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
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:
* library correctly packaged
* %files section right
Please consider my comments before importing.
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.
